Changes to workplace laws

Closing Loopholes

There have been changes to the Fair Work Act as part of the new ‘Closing Loopholes’ laws.

Key points

  • The Australian Government passed new workplace laws as part of its ‘Closing Loopholes’ legislation
  • The changes take effect at different times between December 2023 and August 2025
  • Some changes affect the work the Fair Work Ombudsman does
  • Other changes affect the work of the Fair Work Commission (the Commission). The Commission is the national workplace relations tribunal and registered organisations regulator.

Employers, employees and others should stay across these changes as they may impact their workplace.
