On 25 June 2020, the Industrial Relations Legislation Amendment Bill 2020 (the Bill) was introduced into State Parliament.
The Bill was the State Government’s response to the recommendations made by:
The new laws seek to protect vulnerable workers, tackle wage theft, and ensure a level playing field for WA employers.
The Bill would amend the Industrial Relations Act 1979 (IR Act), the Long Service Leave Act 1958 (LSL Act) and the Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993 (MCE Act).
The Bill lapsed with the proroguing of State Parliament on 7 December 2020.
