Australian Business (the former Chamber of Manufactures of NSW) today described the Federal Coalition’s industrial relations policy as a step in the right direction.

Australian Business agreed with the Federal Oppositions Leader’s claim that there could be no doubt that business, and small business in particular, found the current industrial relations system difficult to manage and a disincentive to employment growth.

Australia’s ability to be competitive in the global marketplace would benefit from a simplified system which focuses on the contemporary needs of employers and their employees. Recognition of the importance of small business now, and in the future, to the nation’s economic prosperity and job creation is welcomed.

A balanced approach to unfair dismissal laws, a simplified method or registering agreed workplace arrangements and a commitment to address taxation, paperwork and regulatory burdens on small businesses will contribute to our economic strength.

However, Australia Business warned that the Coalition needed to be wary of creating a new bureaucracy with the Office of Employment Advocate and said a future Liberal-National Party Government, if elected, needed to be willing to adjust any aspects of its policy which fails to meet the needs of the community.
