The federal government has advertised the position of Fair Work Ombudsman, but incumbent Natalie James is keen to continue in the role. She says the FWO has secured record penalties during her initial five-year term, which expires in July. Labor’s Brendan O’Connor says the role of FWO should be given to someone whose priority is combatting the exploitation of workers, rather than an "anti-worker warrior". James was appointed by the former Labor government.
