  • Implementation of a new "Right to Disconnect" for Australian employers; 
  • Changes to the definition of casual and contract workers; 
  • Expansion of the powers of the Fair Work Commission in arbitrating intractable bargaining disputes; and 
  • Changes to the rights of union representatives in the workplace.
