The consultation paper from the Australian Department of Employment and Workplace Relations (Department) on the proposed Same Job, Same Pay measure sheds some guidance on the Labor government’s commitment to its proposal that labour hire workers are to be paid at least the same as directly engaged employees doing the same work.
