Asia Employment Law Quarterly Review: Q4 2020

Keeping abreast of employment-related legal developments can be challenging. To help you stay up to date, Corrs contributes to the Mayer Brown Asia Employment Law: Quarterly Review, a regular e-publication covering employment-related legal developments in 15 jurisdictions across Asia.

This quarter, John provides comment on a number of key employment law developments in Australia during 2020, including:

  • The Attorney General pausing consultations on industrial relations reform due to COVID-19;

  • Alterations to Modern Awards to introduce prescriptive arrangements for annualised wage arrangements;

  • Changes to Queensland and Victoria’s industrial manslaughter laws;

  • Wage theft legislation introduced in Victoria;

  • The Federal Court handing down a decision that provides a ‘casual’ worker with leave entitlements;

  • The Victorian Inquiry into the on-demand workforce releasing its report;

  • Paid pandemic leave awarded to aged care workers; and

  • ACCC establishing class exemptions for independent contractors and businesses with a turnover of less than $10 million to bargain collectively.
