2.83 The committee recommends
that the states, territories and commonwealth undertake a review of the current
LSL system in Australia, and considers developing a nationally consistent
scheme. Development of a nationally consistent scheme should involve extensive
consultation of both employer and employee groups.
3.132 The committee recommends
that the ABS considers whether the development of an insecure work indicator
would be useful in understanding exactly what insecure work means in Australia.
The process for doing so should involve extensive consultation.
3.133 The committee recommends
that detailed modelling be undertaken by the government to determine the
potential cost to employers of extending portable LSL entitlements to all
workers. This should involve consideration of the cost of staff turnover
including rehiring, training and loss of corporate knowledge, against the cost
of establishing a portable LSL scheme.
