Review finds Fair Work Act effective

A review of Labor’s Fair Work Act is not expected to recommend major changes, after reportedly finding it delivers fairness for workers and flexibility for employers.

Three expert panellists have conducted the first biannual review of the Act, since it’s inception in January 2010.

According to News Limited papers the panel has concluded productivity growth has been ‘disappointing’ under the workplace systems of the past decade,  including the Fair Work Act and John Howard’s Work Choices.

But it’s ‘not persuaded’ the legislative industrial relations framework ‘accounted for this productivity slowdown.’
