We use linked data for 13 991 employees and 1494 workplaces to analyse the incidence of employer-provided training in Australia. We find potential experience, current job tenure, low education levels, skilled vocational training and part-time or fixed-term employment status are all associated with a lower probability of recent training. In contrast to studies for other countries, we find no evidence of discrimination on the basis of demographic characteristics in the provision of this job-related training. Finally, and in support of recent non-competitive training models, higher levels of wage compression are found to be positively related to a greater incidence of employee training.
