New Compliance and Enforcement Policy for registered organisations published

Fair Work Commission

Our General Manager, Murray Furlong, has published a new Compliance and Enforcement Policy for registered organisations.

The independent external review of registered organisations functions by former Commission Members Anna Booth and Jonathan Hamberger identified the need for a new policy that ensures a positive regulatory culture that encourages voluntary compliance and supports the democratic functioning of organisations and is aligned with the interests of their members.

This policy sets out our General Manager’s commitment to providing a positive regulatory culture through a focus on assistance, education, and collaboration.

The policy also outlines how new enforcement powers granted to the General Manager in March 2023 under the Fair Work Legislation Amendment (Secure Jobs, Better Pay) Act 2022 will be used.

We thank the registered organisations who provided feedback to the external review. It is because of their feedback that we can continue to improve our services, such as with the development of this new policy.
