Senator BARBARA POCOCK (South Australia) (19:33): I have a couple of questions that pick up on the question of power and bargaining. Over recent months, the Select Committee on Work and Care has taken evidence from witnesses around Australia around the issues affecting their ability to put together their jobs with the care of others. An important issue has arisen repeatedly throughout these hearings—the right of workers to disconnect from work once they've worked their paid hours. Can the minister please clarify how the bill will address the issues of workers' ability to disconnect from work so that they can protect family time, give care to others and rest?
