Closing Loopholes Bill

The Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Closing Loopholes) Bill 2023 proposes to implement the most expansive changes to Australia's industrial relations since the Fair Work Act commenced in 2009.

If passed in its current form, the 284-page Bill will impact almost every worker and business in Australia, including by:

  • redefining casual employment,
  • introducing "same job, same pay" measures for labour hire workers,
  • criminalising wage theft,
  • regulating "employee-like" arrangements (such as rideshare and food delivery services),
  • re-establishing the multi-factorial test for determining whether a person is an employee or contractor, and
  • introducing new rights for workplace delegates.

How will your business be impacted by these changes? How will you need to adjust your industrial relations priorities in response?

In this guide we break down what you need to know about the proposed changes, and how they will shift the dial on the employee/employer dynamic.
