Closing Loopholes No. 2: Considering Complexities – Professor Andrew Stewart

Andrew Stewart

Centre associate Professor Andrew Stewart (pictured) discusses the Albanese Government’s latest IR legislation, including the new “right to disconnect”, with Piper Alderman partner Emily Haar.

In the Employment Relations Podcast they discuss five key areas of reform:

  • Casual employment, including definitions and “conversion” provisions;
  • The “right to disconnect”;
  • The definition of employment for the purposes of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth);
  • Increases to civil penalties, particularly for civil underpayments; and
  • The impact the new intractable bargaining determination provisions may have on bargaining strategy.

You can listen to the podcast on the Piper Alderman website.
