Labor is seeking to disallow a regulation that aims to protect companies from so-called "double dipping" of entitlements by casual workers. The Australian Industry Group (AI Group) contends Victoria and New South Wales could face claims of over $3.5 billion from casual workers seeking to "double dip".
