18 Mar 2024 12:49 PM | ALERA (Administrator)

The FWC have published a plain language fact sheet on some recent changes to the general protections under the Fair Work Act 2009.

General protections changes: workplace delegates’ rights

There are new protections for workplace delegates when they are carrying out that role.

A workplace delegate is a person appointed or elected by a union to be a delegate or representative for union members working in a particular enterprise. They have the right to represent the industrial interests of members and potential members.

These laws cover most employees and businesses in Australia.
