The Acting Minister for the Status of Women, Jenny Macklin, today called for public comment to help develop the next stage of the Australian Government’s landmark workplace gender equality reforms.
The introduction of the Workplace Gender Equality Act in November means employers with 100 or more employees will be required from 2014 to provide information against a standard set of gender equality indicators in their workplace.
“The Government is currently consulting on the specific reporting detail contained in the gender equality indicators,” Ms Macklin said. For more see media release

Written comments are invited by 29 January 2013. Submissions can be sent to email@example.com.
