Industrial Relations Law Reform Agenda Summary

17 May 2019 | Australia
Legal Briefings – By Wendy Fauvel and Natassia Smith

We’ve had such a demand for our summary of the proposed industrial relations reforms we’ve decided to make them publicly available here. 

These unique resources are the result of dedicated research and updating by Senior Associate Wendy Fauvel and Solicitor Natassia Smith, and are the only guides you need to understand the detail of each party’s industrial relations pre-election policies in the lead up to the Federal Election.

The Agendas outline the policies in areas such as:

  • Bargaining and industrial action
  • Dispute resolution
  • Right of entry
  • Wages and gender pay
  • Modern awards
  • Types of employment
  • National employment standards and paid parental leave
  • Transfer of business
  • Labour hire
  • General protections, bullying, discrimination and unfair dismissal
  • Sham contracting, underpayments and accessorial liability
  • Superannuation
  • Regulators
  • Gig economy
  • Temporary workers
  • Registered organisations
  • Whistleblowing
  • Privacy
