Vol. 284 No. 11

Right to Flexible Work Bill 2022: First Stage

I move:

That leave be granted to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to provide employees with a right to flexible work, to require an employer to deal with a request for flexible work within a fixed period, to provide that an employer may refuse a request only on grounds of reasonable practicability, to require employers to maintain a policy on flexible work which can be inspected by employees and the Workplace Relations Commission, to provide for a right of appeal in certain circumstances against a refusal of flexible work, and to provide for related matters.

Question put and agreed to.

When is it proposed to take Second Stage?

Is that agreed? Agreed.

Second Stage ordered for Tuesday, 10 May 2022.
