    Welcome to the January edition of Workplace View, which provides an overview of some of the key changes to Australian workplace laws in 2012 that you should be aware of in 2013.

    Key highlights include:

    • The Modern Awards Overview
    • Gender Equality update
    • Superannuation changes to be aware of and to understand
