The Australian Institute of Employment Rights (AIER) is an independent organisation that seeks to ensure fair and decent workplace rights for all.
AIER works in the areas of legislation, research, education and advocacy to champion the fundamental rights and responsibilities of employers and workers, and to create positive workplaces.
AIER, along with the NUW and ASU, ran a workshop at the recent Progress Conference on how progressive organisation can set up fair and decent workplaces.read more
Australia’s current workplace relations system and related laws are failing to provide a fair go for people who work and those seeking work. The AIER is embarking on an ambitious project to develop a new workplace relations architecture. This is a bold project to that will look to reconfigure industrial relations, human rights and health and safety laws and regulations. As a society we are facing significant economic and social challenges, including profound and rapid changes in the way work is organised and conducted. At the AIER we believe the situation cannot be rectified by tinkering around the edges with minor reform. We have released our project plan and welcome input and comment.
