Industry Update

Message from the Director

Welcome to the latest Industry Update.  FWBC is incredibly busy, with 140 active investigations across the country.

The majority of the allegations related to Right of Entry breaches (42%) followed by unlawful industrial action (25%) and coercion (20%).

Queensland currently has the most active investigations, 36, closely followed by South Australia which has 34 investigations.

The most important factor in avoiding potential workplace law breaches is to know your rights and obligations. We have included information about enterprise agreements in this month’s update.

And there is also information on attending rallies and the penalties for obstructing FWBC investigators, as well as the usual wrap-up of legal cases.

You can give me feedback via the contact details below.
