(a) notes that this bill does not require contractors to provide for their superannuation payments, workers compensation, and for income insurance, normally mandated to be covered by an employer; and

(b) calls on the Government:

(i) to investigate the issue of cost shifting from private to public as a result of shifts in labour markets away from employment relationships to contractual relationships, where the absence of a mandatory requirement for superannuation payments, for workers compensation, and for income insurance to be covered results in a significant new and long-term burden on taxpayers, and

(ii) to report to the Parliament within the next 12 months outlining what solutions it proposes to this problem” ( Senator Barnett, in continuation, 28 November 2006 ).
