The NSW Business Chamber has proposed changes to six industry awards in response to a landmark Federal Court ruling on the annual leave rights of casual workers. The Chamber proposes allowing casual workers who are regularly rostered to become "perma-flexi" employees with paid leave entitlements, while their casual loading would be reduced from 25 per cent to just 10 per cent. The Chamber has put its proposal to Fair Work Commission president Iain Ross, while the federal government is believed to be looking at options such as amendments to the Fair Work Act in response to the court ruling.
