Fair Work Act Amendment

Changes to Fair Work came into effect on 1 January 2013.  What do these mean to an employer?

Over arching all the changes, Fair Work Australia was renamed the Fair Work Commission; the web address for information is now www.fwc.gov.au.

Included in the legislative changes:

  • The time limit for lodging an unfair dismissal claim increases from 14 to 21 days;
  • the time limit for loding a general protections dismissal claim reduces from 60 to 21 days from the date of dismissal;
  • Changes come into effect with regard to enterprise agreements
