Workplace relations is a dynamic policy area, which is frequently at the forefront of national policy debates. The Workplace Relations (WR) Group supports the Australian Government’s workplace relations agenda through the development of policy advice, administering key workplace relations programs and engaging with government, industry and community stakeholders. 

The Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations has committed to implementing the Government’s extensive Secure Australian Jobs Plan. Key reform priorities focus on further measures to support workers in low paid, female dominated industries; supporting workers employed through labour hire companies; criminalising wage theft and extending the powers of the Fair Work Commission to include ‘employee-like’ forms of work, to better protect people from exploitative and dangerous working conditions. The Government is also focused on improving work health and safety outcomes for workers.
