The Fair Work Ombudsman (FWO) makes submissions to various State and Federal parliamentary inquiries. These submissions provide information and insights based on our interactions with the community conducting educational, compliance and enforcement activities.
Since 1 July 2018, we have contributed to the following parliamentary inquiries:
Inquiry into the Victorian on-demand workforce
We provided a submission to the Victorian Government’s Inquiry into the Victorian on-demand workforce in relation to the on-demand sector and the status of people working with or for online companies or platforms in Victoria. The final inquiry report is due to the Victorian Government later this year.
Inquiry into Wage Theft in Queensland
We provided a submission to the Queensland Parliament’s Education, Employment and Small Business Committee in relation to its Inquiry into Wage Theft in Queensland. The submission outlined our role as the national workplace relations regulator, the impact of our work in Queensland, and efforts to enforce compliance with workplace laws through cross-government initiatives.

We provided a submission to the Senate Education and Employment References Committee’s Inquiry into the exploitation of general and specialist cleaners working in retail chains for contracting or subcontracting cleaning companies.
