- What We Do
We take a leading role in government advocacy, media campaigning and law reform activity to promote workplace justice and equity for all workers.
We conduct research into employment and industrial law issues. Our research is based on real experiences of workers as sourced from our Telephone Information Service and the associated database of employment law statistics.
We make submissions to a broad range of employment and industrial relations government inquiries, drawing upon our expertise to articulate the human impact of government policy decisions and legislation.
