"Ai Group played the leading role in representing employers in the case. If the ACTU's claims had been accepted, all awards would have been varied to give employees the right to dictate to their employer what hours and days they work, with the employer having no right to refuse regardless of the circumstances.
"The Commission has drafted a model clause aimed at facilitating discussion between employers and employees about flexible work arrangements rather than imposing outcomes upon employers, and has called for submissions on the model clause. Ai Group will study the decision and the draft clause and will express its views to the Commission by the 1 May 2018 deadline," said Mr Willox.
