Industrial Law Committee
The Industrial Law Committee aims to provide a focal point for those practising in the area of industrial law, particularly in the Federal Jurisdiction.
The Committee aims to:
- support the Law Council and the Federal Litigation Section by providing expert comment in the area of industrial law and practice;
- provide a link between practitioners and the institutions which have an impact in the field of industrial law, including the Federal Court, the Australian Industrial Relations Commission, the Parliament and relevant Departments of State;
- provide a point of reference for members wishing to raise or express views about contemporary issues in industrial law or practice;
- provide for the dissemination of topical information, through seminars, papers and newsletters, to members of the Section with a special interest in industrial law and practice; and
- bring together practitioners from various states and territories to facilitate exchange of information and experience in areas relevant to industrial law and practice.
The Committee has prepared submissions to the Government on the Workplace Relations Legislation and, more recently, to the Senate Employment, Workplace Relations, Small Business and Education Legislation Committee on the Workplace Legislation Amendment (More Jobs, Better Pay) Bill 1999.
It has conducted a national seminar series on The Changing Face of Industrial Law following the Federal Governments Work Choices reforms in 2006.
Importantly, the Committee also provides a nominee to participate in the User Group established by the President of the Australian Industrial Relations Commission.
