Government to host fair work bill briefings

By Ian Neubauer

The Employment Law Division will be conducting briefings across three states next week to discuss the impact of the new Fair Work Bill — the bill intended to replace the Howard Government’s Work Choices laws.

Minister for Workplace Relations, Julia Gillard, who introduced the bill in Federal Parliament last Tuesday (November 25), said it aims to create a fairer system for employers and employees alike.

"The bill delivers a fair and comprehensive safety net of minimum employment conditions that cannot be stripped away — a system that has at its heart bargaining in good faith at the enterprise level as this is essential to maximise workplace cooperation and improve productivity and create rising national prosperity," the ABC reported the minister saying.

The Melbourne briefing will be held at the Amora Hotel Riverwalk in Richmond on December 9 at 4:00pm.

The Sydney briefing will be held at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in the CBD on December 10 at 4:00pm.

The Brisbane briefing will be held at the NRA Head office in Fortitude Valley on December 11 at 4:00pm.

No information is available on briefings in other capital cities.
