Recommendation 1

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.

Recommendation 2

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.

Recommendation 3

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.
