The May 2018 Budget has allocated $A110.009m in funding to the Fair Work Ombudsman in 2018-19, down from $A110.46m in 2017-18. However, the Registered Organisations Commission’s funding has been increased by $A8.1m. Labor’s workplace relations spokesman Brendan O’Connor has criticised the Federal Government for providing additional funding for the "disgraced" ROC rather than addressing the issue of rampant wage theft. The University of Adelaide’s Professor Andrew Stewart has expressed similar concerns.
