CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY — OFFSHORE WORKERS — LONG SERVICE LEAVE

32. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Industrial Relations:

I refer to the exclusion of offshore construction workers from the definition of “construction industry” in the Construction Industry Portable Paid Long Service Leave Act 1985.

(1)  Does the minister accept that the exclusion of construction workers on ships from the portable paid long service leave scheme is inequitable?

(2)  Does the minister support legislative reform to address this issue?

WAGE THEFT INQUIRY

1406. Hon ALISON XAMON to the minister representing the Minister for Industrial Relations:

I refer to the inquiry into wage theft.

(1)  When will the minister release the report of the inquiry?

(2)  Does the minister intend to progress legislative reform based on recommendations from the inquiry?

(3)  If yes to (2), when?

(4)  If no to (2), why not?
