ON DEMAND: National Employment Relations Seminar Series | Changes to the Fair Work Act: What is in store for Employers?


CPD points: 1


Human resource managers


People managers


In-house legal counsel

On 27 October 2022, the Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Secure Jobs, Better Pay) Bill 2022 (Bill) was tabled in the Commonwealth Parliament. The Bill represents the first major attempt by the recently elected Labor Government to seek to alter industrial relations legislation following the Jobs and Skills Summit in September 2022 (you can read more about that here.)

You may have seen the headlines, but what is really in the Bill, and how will these proposed changes, if passed, impact your organisation and workforce strategy? And what other changes could still be coming?

Join Professor Andrew Stewart, Consultant, and Tim Lange, Partner, for a discussion of the Bill, including the proposals to:

  • broaden the capacity for employees to request flexible working arrangements
  • restrict the use of fixed-term contracts
  • close the gender pay gap, including through banning pay secrecy clauses
  • expand the options for multi-employer bargaining
  • simplify the process for approving enterprise agreements
  • change the rules on the termination of agreements, and
  • abolish the Australian Building and Construction Commission and the Registered Organisations Commission.


Presented on Wednesday, 16 November


Cost: Complimentary
Duration: Up to 60 minutes
CPD: 1 Substantive Point
On demand registration is open to all organisations, excluding other legal service providers.
