SMEs part of political tug of war

SMEs part of political tug of war (Last Updated On: April 21, 2016)


Things are certainly heating up in the political arena, with Malcolm Turnbull looking to battle the Labor stronghold of employment relations. This poignantly places Employsure and our industry front and centre of political discussions.

To date, Turnbull is focused on two key pieces of workplace legislation; – the re-instatement of the Australian Building and Construction commission (ABCC) which is likely to be used as a trigger for a double dissolution election, and the Road Safety Remuneration Tribunal (RSRT), which will be abolished as of today.

These early indications show that Turnbull wants to take the political fight back to the traditional values the two parties hold dear, Labor (ALP) as the stand-in for workers and their rights, and Liberal turning its focus back to encouraging economic growth through an environment that actively supports small to medium enterprise (SMEs)

As a result, it is more than fair to anticipate robust debate and discussion, and no doubt eventual changes to employment relations legislation in the near future. Employsure can help you to stay on top of all things legislature, ensuring you are fully aware of your obligations as an employer. Call us on 1300 651 415 to find out more.
