The Federal Government has overhauled the industrial relations system and introduced ten National Employment Standards through the Fair Work Act 2009. One of these Standards is the “Right to Request Flexibility” (r2r) which will commence on 1 January 2010. The r2r Standard provides eligible employees with significant entitlements, and imposes strict process and decision-making obligations on employers. A key finding from an Aequus Partners/CCH national survey on knowledge about the r2r was that most employees and managers appear to have little or no understanding of the change. Unless employers act before 1 January 2010, non-compliance will be a certainty and employee needs for flexibility will be in doubt. Join Juliet Bourke from Aequus Partners when she explains r2r from both an employer and employee perspective at next month’s forum. Register now to secure your place. Cost: $25pp (light refreshments served)
