The Fair Work Commission (FWC) has released the latest quarterly report, showing trends in applications made to it. The report is accessible at: http://www.fwc.gov.au/index.cfm?pagename=aboutquarterlyreports.

The key trends show that adverse action claims following a dismissal have increased over the last quarter along with the total of all general protection claims. Unfair dismissal claims have fallen after peaking in December last year and the number of enterprise bargaining agreements lodged for approval with FWC has continued to fall for the second quarter in a row.

These key trends are demonstrated by the table below that outlines the number and type of applications lodged to FWC for each quarterly period since July 2012:
