Senator MURRAY(11.32 a.m.) —I move:

(6)   Schedule 5, item 3, page 11 (line 17), after "after", insert "the employee is given notice of".

This is just a minor amendment to the government's amendment to count the number of days from when the employee is given notice of a decision by management to mass retrench workers. We have added the words `the employee is given notice of'. In other words, we want to prevent managers keeping the decision secret from workers for three weeks to prevent relief under the act. They must be given notice; that is obviously the need. Accordingly, it is a technical amendment, but it is important.
