Only those changes arising from the review of the Fair Work Act 2009 that are agreed by both employers and unions will be implemented in the Federal Government’s initial response to the review, according to media reports.

The Australian has reported that at the National Workplace Relations Consultative Council meeting in Melbourne today (15 October) the Workplace Relations Minister, Bill Shorten, will make this announcement.

Some unfair dismissal changes soon
 
However, there are some changes to unfair dismissal laws expected soon that will require more detail from applicants when initiating action and also allow cost orders when a party unreasonably refuses to discontinue an unfair dismissal action or unreasonably refuses to settle an unfair dismissal matter.

In other respects, only those changes agreed by employers and unions will be pursued at this time.
