Impact of technological and other change on the future of work and workers in New South Wales: First report - the gig economy
A key recommendation in this inquiry report is for the NSW Government to establish a powerful new tribunal to set enforceable, fair standards for all workers in the gig economy, regardless of their employment classification.
This report for the Australian Fair Work Commission identifies important work from home (WFH) trends emerging in Australia in 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
This report argues that reform is required to allow for greater flexibility over penalty rates in what is currently a highly centralised system.
This evaluation of the Fair Work legislation was formally assessed as meeting the requirements of a post-implementation review by the Office of Best Practice Regulation. The government is currently considering the report, and will respond in due course.
This is AHRI’s second study, in association with Deakin University, on the impact for the Fair Work Act in Australian workplaces. The findings provide a first hand perspective on the operational impact of the Fair Work laws.
