If you have any queries, please contact the department.
The Fair Work Amendment (Transfer of Business) Act 2012 commenced operation on 5 December 2012. The Act amended the Fair Work Act 2009 to regulate employment arrangements for employees transferring from state-system government employers to national system employers. The provisions impact employees in New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and Tasmania.
A Regulation Impact Statement was not prepared for the legislation due to an exceptional circumstances exemption being provided by the then Prime Minister. The Department of Employment must therefore conduct a Post-implementation Review of the legislation in accordance with Australian Government best practice regulation requirements.
The review has been guided by Terms of Reference.
A targeted consultation strategy was used to inform the review process. Submissions were invited from: state governments affected by the legislation, members of the National Workplace Relations Consultative Council and the Community and Public Sector Union. The scope of consultations reflects the narrow coverage of the legislation.
Submissions have now closed and they are available below.
Questions about the review should be directed to the review mailbox in the first instance.
