Security Industry Award changes from 1 December 2018

From 1 December 2018, modern awards will include new rules about requests for flexible work arrangements.

Before responding to a request from an eligible employee, an employer must first discuss the request with the employee to try to reach an agreement about a change to their working arrangements. Requests can only be refused on reasonable business grounds. If employers refuse a request, they need to provide the employee with a written response.

  • Requests for flexible working arrangements
  • Termination of employment
  • consultation about major workplace change
  • consultation about changes to rosters or hours of work
  • dispute resolution
  • individual flexibility arrangements

The amended clauses can be viewed via the following links:
