NFAW Annual Dinner – Tuesday 29 November 2016

More than 60 of us enjoyed meeting each other and listening to Barbara Deegan speak about the impact of increasing casualisation of the Australian workforce. More and more employees are being engaged on short term contracts which reduce their benefits and access to leave and mean that it is difficult for them to qualify eg for mortgage loans. While regulations apply, enforcement and monitoring is constrained because of limited resourcing for the Fair Work Ombudsman.
