As we transition in to the New Year, it is worth just checking that we are up to date with Fair Work and other changes that came in in 2019 and we are ready for what is coming. Here are some little reminders on what has already changed:

And a couple of new heads ups:

The modern award review process is still going in the Fair Work Commission 6 years after it started and we can expect more changes to awards in the year ahead. The other burning issue in 2019 was that of all of the cases of corporate underpayment of wages and the growing use of the term “wage theft”. This has prompted State and Federal Governments to explore the potential for criminal sanctions for deliberate wage theft – more coming on this no doubt in 2020.
