The Future of Work: Challenges of Regulation for the Albanese Labor Government
A/Prof Elizabeth Hill, Political Economy, University of Sydney – on work, gender and the care economy Dr Elizabeth Humphrys, UTS – on work, climate change and heat stress Alison Pennington, Senior Economist, Centre for Future Work – the case for collective bargaining reform.
Among many issues, Labor’s victory in the Federal Election raises the future of work, and the regulation of work and employment, as central points of contention in terms of politics and policy. The ongoing socio-economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, rising living costs and falling real wages are related problems that confront the new government. This forum brings together experts to address different regulatory dimensions and challenges of work, including gender inequality and the regulation of the care economy, climate change and heat stress in workplaces, and the case for a new system of collective bargaining ‘with Australian characteristics’. Each expert will outline key issues and problems in these areas as well as key challenges facing government at the beginning of this new chapter in Australian politics.
Thursday, June 02, 2022, 12:30 PM until 1:30 PM
Videoconference information will be provided in an email once registration is complete.
