The Victorian Government has announced an Inquiry into the on-demand workforce. The Inquiry, chaired by former Federal Fair Work Ombudsman, Natalie James, will investigate the extent of the on-demand sector and the status of people working with or for on-line companies or platforms in Victoria.
The establishment of the Inquiry follows widespread concern about the wages and conditions being offered to workers in the on-demand and gig economy.
The Inquiry will examine allegations and determinations concerning contracting arrangements and whether these arrangements are being used to avoid workplace laws and other statutory obligations in Victoria.
The Inquiry will consider and report to the Minister for Industrial Relations in 2019.
VCOSS plans to provide a submission. To help develop our submission, we invite you or a representative of your organisation to a consultation forum to share your views with other VCOSS members and inform our feedback.
The closing date for making a submission is 6 February 2019.
Submissions can be emailed to: OnDemandInquiry@ecodev.vic.gov.au
Please note this consultation is for VCOSS members only.
