Hope for review of penalty rates

The federal tourism minister Martin Ferguson has emphasised that weekend and public holiday ‘penalty on penalty’ issues represented a major obstacle for the tourism industry in the current economic climate and hopes a review by Fair Work Australia will lessen wage pressures.

Speaking at a national hospitality conference in Hobart, Mr Ferguson said, “I hope the bench of Fair Work Australia has given proper regard to the input of the tourism industry in this context because I understand that is the key issue to industry at this point in time.”

The minister was confident that new penalty provisions would be considered in Fair Work Australia’s review, which he expects to be completed by the end of the year.
