Stretching Flexibility

Sex Discrimination

Stretching Flexibility examines the impact on women workers of demands to work increasingly flexible hours and changes to working time arrangements being negotiated in enterprise agreements. The report recommends that the ACTU develop a comprehensive policy on working time arrangements, building on gains in leave arrangements as well as the insertion of implementation and monitoring mechanisms into agreements. It also stresses the need for the maintenance and strengthening of minimum standards and protection through a comprehensive "no disadvantage" test, as well as the maintenance and strengthening of consultation requirements.
