The first half of the Albanese Government’s Closing Loopholes Bill was passed on parliament’s last sitting day in 2023, bringing significant changes on matters such as labour hire, criminal liability for underpaying workers, and the rights of union officials and delegates. But with Part 2 still before the Senate, and continuing arguments about the proposals concerning casuals and gig workers in particular, not to mention a possible new “right to disconnect” when away from work, there is still much to be decided. Join Professor Andrew Stewart as he reviews some of the key items on the government’s reform agenda and their likely impact during 2024.
