PENALTY RATES INQUIRY

On 24 July 2017, Ai Group filed a detailed submission in a Senate Penalty Rates Inquiry. The submission argues that:

  • Claims that enterprise agreements give large employers a competitive advantage over smaller businesses are not correct.
  • Claims that many enterprise agreements in the retail and fast food industries disadvantage the employees covered by these agreements are false.
  • The Better Off Overall Test (BOOT) under the FW Act is not working effectively. Section 193 of the Act needs to be amended to restore a workable approach.

If you would like assistance in applying penalty rates, please contact Ai Group’s Workplace Advice Service on 1300 55 66 77.
Alternatively, if you would like assistance in negotiations with unions or in dealing with industrial disputes, please contact your local employment, workplace and industrial lawyer in Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, Melbourne or Brisbane or email Ai Group Workplace Lawyers at info@aigroupworkplacelawyers.com.au.
