Five key reforms for Jobs Summit
Our Principal Solicitor, Patrick O'Callaghan, has urged the Federal Government to keep vulnerable workers front and centre of deliberations at the Jobs and Skills Summit which kicks of this morning.
Mr O'Callaghan added his voice to an appeal by Community Legal Centres Australia not to forget the most marginalised workers in the community. In a letter to the government the peak body wrote: "We represent workers whose voices are often unheard.
"The summit will shape the future of Australia's labour market. This summit is an ideal opportunity to improve the working conditions for vulnerable workers, and meaningfully add to national wellbeing and economic growth."
