The Expert Panel of the Fair Work Commission (FWC) handed down its Annual Wage Review 2021-22 Decision on 15 June 2022.  

The Labor Government has announced a lengthy list of workplace relations changes that it intends to introduce as a priority. Also, the Government has announced that an Employment Summit will be held over the next few months (in late-September or October).

On 28 June, the Federal Government wrote to the FWC advising that Government intends to introduce a Bill into Parliament early in the two week sitting period commencing on 26 July to amend the National Employment Standards to implement 10 days per annum of paid family and domestic violence (FDV) leave. This followed a 16 May decision of a Full Bench of the FWC expressing a provisional view that all modern awards should be varied to include an entitlement to up to 10 days per annum of paid FDV leave.
