Staying abreast of employment-related legal developments can be challenging. To help you stay up to date, Corrs Chambers Westgarth contributes to the “Asia Employment Law: Quarterly Review”, a publication covering employment-related legal developments across Asia.

In our chapter this quarter, we provide comment on several key employment law developments in Australia during the first quarter of this year, including:

  • changes to federal building industry legislation and the procurement requirements in the building code;

  • proposed new laws to protect vulnerable workers, impose potential liability for workplace law breaches on franchisors, and prohibit corrupt transactions between employers and unions; and

  • the Fair Work Commission’s landmark decision to reduce award ‘penalty rates’ in the retail and hospitality sectors.
