Regulations as made
These regulations amend the Fair Work Regulations 2009 to repeal amendments made by the Fair Work Amendment (Variation of Enterprise Agreements) Regulations 2020, which modified the period that employees must have access to a copy of a proposed variation of an enterprise agreement, and before which employees must be notified of the details of the vote on the variation (the ‘access period’), from seven days to one day. This measure was intended to be a time-limited change to enable employers and their employees to quickly respond to issues that may arise in response to COVID-19.
