After the 2007 election, the hallmarks of the new government’s IR policy were the phasing out of AWAs and reform of unfair dismissal laws, key elements of the Howard Government’s WorkChoices policy. The legislation which achieved these and other changes was the Workplace Relations Amendment (Transition to Forward with Fairness) Act 2008.
Transition to Forward with Fairness: Labor’s Reform Agenda by Anthony Forsyth, Breen Creighton, Val Gostencnik and Tim Sharard is a practical guide to these significant transitional arrangements, the full implementation of which was not complete until early 2010.
This book, published in 2008, has ongoing relevance as a useful guide to a turbulent phase of workplace relations change. Law, IR and HR practitioners and students will continue to find its clear discussion of complex legislation and policy change very helpful when dealing with the law of that period. Law stated as at 16 June 2008.
