Views on the referral of Queensland’s IR jurisdiction

Activity occurred prior to the current government.

The Queensland Government is seeking the views of industrial relations stakeholders and the business community on whether it should maintain or terminate the referral of its industrial relations jurisdiction for the unincorporated private sector to the Commonwealth.

An Issues Paper has been developed to provide the broad context against which to assess the current industrial relations arrangements and the desirability of maintaining or terminating the current referral. The Issues Paper poses one broad question to be considered by those who wish to make a submission in response to the paper. The Issues Paper, including its question, provides a guide only and should not limit the responses from interested parties.

The Issues Paper can be accessed here (PDF, 253.2 KB).

Submissions are to be made by 5pm, Friday 22 February 2013 and can be made by e-mail, post or fax to:
