At the dissolution of the Senate and the House of Representatives on 9 May 2016 for a general election on 2 July 2016, the parliamentary committees of the 44th Parliament ceased to exist. Therefore inquiries that were not completed have lapsed and submissions cannot be received. However, information about the inquiries is still available on this website.
Information on this committee in the 45th Parliament will be presented here as soon as it is available.
On 15 October 2015, the Senate referred the inquiry into the Fair Work Amendment (Gender Pay Gap) Bill 2015 to the Education and Employment Legislation Committee for inquiry and report by 12 May 2016.
Submissions closed on 17 February 2016.
