There has been a mixed response to a call by former Productivity Commission chairman Gary Banks to make industrial relations reform a priority in the wake of the pandemic. Business Council of Australia CEO Jennifer Westacott supports his proposal to revisit the recommendations of the PC’s 2014 inquiry into the IR system, particularly those regarding the Fair Work Act’s ‘better-off-overall test’. However, University of Melbourne labour economist Jeff Borland has questioned the benefits of major IR changes, while the ACTU also opposes any such reforms.
