The Federal Government has made changes to the independent contractors legislation that is currently in Parliament. The amendments cover: outworker protections, unfair contract changes so harshness or unfairness is assessed at the time the contract is made, and the powers of courts in reviewing services contracts.

The amendments to the legislation contain provisions to ensure the legislation does not override State and Territory outworker protections.

More amendments will be made to the Workplace Relations Act to ensure reinstatement, or compensation in lieu of reinstatement, would be available as a remedy to a person who was dismissed and re-engaged as an independent contractor.
