The Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Closing Loopholes) Act 2023 (Closing Loopholes Act) was passed by Parliament on 7 December 2023 and received Royal Assent on 14 December 2023.

Some elements of the Closing Loopholes Act commenced operation on 15 December 2023, but several key elements are operative from a different date.

The President of the Fair Work Commission (FWC) has issued a statement regarding the impact of the Closing Loopholes Act amendments that affect the FWC’s functions and processes, and the approach the FWC will take to implementing these changes.

A newly created detailed guide to the Closing Loopholes Act and additional guidance material regarding the legislative changes is available to members on our website.
