Backing QLD Small Business & Creating Local Jobs

LNP Backing Small Business Policies

Fiona Simpson (Shadow Minister for Employment & Small Business) together with Deb Frecklington, Leader of the State LNP team, are delighted to release two new policies as part of Small Business Week to help champion Queensland’s great small businesses.

Giving small businesses a fair go to better access $15 billion of State Government contracts is a key plank in our “Prioritising Procurement” policy.

This will help unlock more opportunity for local businesses to grow local jobs by prioritising government procurement to ensure small businesses get priority consideration for contracts up to $250,000.

We also have a plan to inspire another generation of young entrepreneurs with mentoring programs to learn business and financial literacy skills to help launch and grow their own businesses.

Small businesses are the backbone of Queensland’s economy and the LNP wants to help existing businesses get ahead and support the next generation of small business leaders.

Their prioritising procurement policy will put Queensland SMEs front and centre in procurement decisions to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent supporting those businesses that support our regions.

These LNP policies deliver value for money and back small businesses to grow, invest and succeed.

Today’s announcement also includes a plan to mentor 8000 young Queenslanders and provide them with the tools to launch their own small business.

There is high unemployment, a youth jobs crisis in regional Queensland, low wage growth and a lack of confidence in many areas.

The March Sensis Business Index ranked the Palaszczuk Labor Government as the least popular government among small and medium sized businesses for the fourth consecutive quarter.

The April CommSec State of the States report ranked Queensland in 6th place nationally.

The statistics speak for themselves and that’s why the LNP is committed to making Queensland the economic powerhouse it once was, while backing small business in the process.

LNP Government policies to back small business:

  1. No new taxes
  2. Fair pay policy
  3. Red tape reduction
  4. Inspire the next generation
  5. Prioritise procurement
  6. Cheaper electricity

New Fair Work regulation clarifies offsetting rules for casual loading payments
Monday, 07 January 2019 13:21

Employers who incorrectly classify employees as casual instead of full-time or part-time could be responsible for back paying various entitlements under the National Employment Standards (NES), following a recent Federal Court of Australia decision in Workpac v Skene [2018] FCAFC 131.

However, the Government has varied the Fair Work Regulations 2009 to clarify that employers, in certain circumstances, may claim that an employee's casual loading payments should be offset against certain NES entitlements owing to the employee.

This regulation came into effect on 18 December 2018.

How does the new regulation work?

The new regulation applies where all of the following criteria are met:

  • An employee is employed by their employer on a casual basis
  • The employee is paid a casual loading that is clearly identifiable as being an amount paid to compensate the person in lieu of entitlements that casual employees are not entitled to under the NES, such as personal or annual leave
  • Despite being classified by the employer as a casual, the employee was in fact a full-time or part-time employee for some or all of their employment for the purposes of the NES
  • The employee has made a claim to be paid for one or more of the NES entitlements (that casual employees do not have) that they didn't receive for all or some of the time that they were incorrectly classified as a casual.

If all of these points are satisfied, an employer can make a claim to have the casual loading payments made to the employee taken into account when working out the entitlements owing to the employee for the relevant NES entitlements.

The new regulation applies to employment periods that occurred before, or that occurred on or after, 18 December 2018.

Visit the Federal Register of Legislation to read the  Fair Work Amendment (Casual Loading Offset) Regulations 2018.
