Senator REID —My question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. What obligations will employers have to employees working under the jobs compact arrangement? Will they be subject to the provisions of the Industrial Relations Act? In particular, at the end of a jobs compact employment period, will employers be subject to the termination of employment provisions of that act?

Senator GARETH EVANS —My understanding is that the Industrial Relations Act provisions will cover this, but as to the detail of it, one of my colleagues who has the running brief on this might be prepared to give a further response, if not right now, then after question time. I will take the rest of the question on notice.
