Industrial relations regime is expected to undergo substantial reforms over coming months

In the past week, Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced that a set of industrial relations reforms will be introduced to Parliament before Christmas 2020. The reforms are intended to strengthen job growth in an economy still recovering from the impacts of COVID-19.
The Prime Minster warned that ‘there won’t be sweeping praise from the union movement and businesses won’t see their version of an industrial utopia either’. However, it is expected that the changes will be more favourable to businesses on balance.
