    Hi everyone,

    Can anyone please explain to me what is the effectiveness of the Fair Work Commission in relation to the modern awards in the Australian system of employment relations?

    Hi Rod,

    Most of the articles that I read describe the system on the negative side especially with the penalty rates decision. So I want to know the Commission’s effectiveness. This is for a school requirement.

    It's highly effective.
    I suggest having a look at their website, and a read of their annual report.

    Thank you, Tim. I need to have a strong basis for its effectiveness as some view it as “broken” and pro-employer.

    I don't see it as pro-employer at all. I hear complaints going the other way.

    You provide a starting point and comments/analysis and we'll provide feedback.
