The Policy -

Yesterday, the Coalition released its workplace relations policy, The Coalition's Policy to Improve the Fair Work Laws (Policy), which promises that no Australian worker will be worse off and businesses will be encouraged to grow.

The Policy repeats the Coalition mantra that "Work Choices is dead, buried and cremated" but seeks to address a number of business concerns with current laws.

Importantly, the Coalition says that it will keep the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and will make all changes within this framework.
