|Abstract/Citation:||The Fair Work (State Referral and Consequential and Other Amendments) Act 2009 amends the Fair Work Act 2009 (FW Act) to enable States to refer matters to the Commonwealth to establish a national workplace relations system. The Act makes transitional arrangements for Victorian employees and employers, who were covered by the Workplace Relations Act 1996 as a result of a reference of power and who are covered by a new reference of power.
This Act also makes transitional and consequential amendments to other Commonwealth legislation required as a result of the FW Act and the Fair Work (Transitional Provisions and Consequential Amendments) Act 2009.
