Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull's new cabinet lineup retains Senator Michaelia Cash in the employment portfolio. She is also Minister for Women and Minister assisting the PM for the Public Service.

Senator Cash will play a key role in attempting to restore the Australian Building and Construction Commission. The ABCC and the Registered Organisations bills were the triggers for the double dissolution election.

Another Coalition priority will be amending industrial laws to protect volunteer firefighters from deals such as the one between the Victorian state government and the United Firefighters’ Union.

Parliament resumes on August 30.
