Protection of Employment (Uncertain Hours) Bill 2016: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide greater protection for employees by more effectually regulating zero hours and related employment practices; and to provide for related matters

I second the proposal.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

I propose that it be taken in the Labour Party's next available Private Members' time slot. To the best of my recollection, that date is 9 November.

I suggest the Senator propose that it be taken next Tuesday. It can then be taken any time after that.

I, therefore, propose that it be taken next Tuesday.

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 4 October 2016.
Sitting suspended at 12.30 p.m. and resumed at 2.05 p.m.
