New workplace laws passed

Earlier this month, the Government passed the Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Secure Jobs, Better Pay) Act 2022. This legislation introduces new workplace laws and amends a range of existing rules.

Some of these changes started this month, while others will commence next year. Amongst the changes are new restrictions regulating the use of fixed term contracts (these are expected to commence in late 2023).

There is an intersection here with these changes and financial risk management, so we are monitoring the details closely. The non-profit sector will need time to digest these changes and we are aware that some organisations are already seeking advice. We would encourage clients to reach out to your HR advisor, or employer association, to better understand the changes ahead.

For more information see the Fairwork website.
