The business sector is calling for changes to industrial relations laws, and Coalition backbenchers are also pressuring the federal government for action in this area. The Business Council of Australia has called for the replacement of the ‘better off overall test’ with a new test that would only require each class of employee, rather than each individual employee, not to be worse off when the Fair Work Commission is asked to approve an enterprise agreement. Meanwhile, Liberal National party senator Amanda Stoker claims unfair dismissal laws as they apply to small and medium businesses represent a "block to growth", while she also says the modern award system is too complicated.
