Assessing the impact of 'workchoices' one year on

27 Mar 2007

This report uses data from a range of sources, including the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS), the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (DEWR), the Office of the Employment Advocate (OEA), the Office of the Workplace Rights Advocate (WRA), private surveys, media and web reports, to analyse the experience to date under WorkChoices. It is an extension of independent academic research undertaken over several months and published in early February 2007. This report builds on that research, taking account of new data that have become available and investigating several areas in greater depth. Matters considered include the level and distribution of real earnings changes; productivity and economic performance; employment growth; conditions of employment and the content of agreements; dismissal behaviour by employers; and the minimum wage decision by the Australian Fair Pay Commission (AFPC).
