This alert is the second of a two part summary outlining the key recommendations made in the Productivity Commission’sWorkplace Relations Framework Productivity Commission Inquiry Report (Report).  To read the first part of the summary recently published by the HopgoodGanim Industrial and Employment Law team, please click here.

The Productivity Commission’s Report includes a number of recommendations for improvement to Australia’s current workplace relations system.  The Report ultimately concludes that Australia’s workplace relations framework is in need of ‘repair’, but not ‘replacement’. As indicated in Part 1 of our summary, at least some of the recommendations in the Report are likely to feature in the Coalition policy platform for ongoing industrial relations reform, to be taken to this year’s federal election.

Further to Part 1 of the summary, the HopgoodGanim Industrial and Employment Law team summarises more of the Productivity Commission’s key recommendations in the table below.
