Australian Business Lawyers have issued a number of WorkChoices updates - to present the key aspects of the new legislation. This article considers amendments to the WorkChoices Regulations that came into effect in June.
 

The Workplace Relations Regulations 2006 came into effect at the same time as the WorkChoices laws - 27 March 2006. The Federal Government has now amended the WorkChoices Regulations impacting on records that employees have to keep, personal leave and other matters. WorkplaceInfo has also published a previous article covering the amendments.
 
Matters covered
 
The main amendments cover:
  •  the 'hours' record keeping obligations of employers;

  • 'cashing out' of paid personal leave and paid compassionate leave;

  • the power of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission to vary severance pay entitlements under industrial instruments where alternative employment is obtained for the employee; and
  •  the interaction between State and Territory OHS laws and right of entry by unions.

The amending Regulations listed above commenced on 5 June 2006.
