Submission to the Select Committee on Job Security

The Committee recently lodged a submission with the Senate Select Committee on Job Security, which is conducting an inquiry into the prevalence of insecure work in Australia. Broadly, the Society argued that gig economy workers, in particular share and food delivery drivers, should be extended minimum entitlements commensurate to other workers in the Australian economy, through amendments to the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) or the introduction of sui generis legislation.
