From Fairwork, I understand that it comes down to your employment contract or application of the Federal Biosecurity Act 2015.

If an employee refuses to be vaccinated (contrary to a specific law, agreement or contract that requires vaccination, or after receiving a lawful and reasonable direction), an employer should, as a first step, ask the employee to explain their reasons for refusing the vaccination.
