Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2007 Week 5 Hansard (29 May) . . Page.. 1072..
MR BARR (continuing):
are also made to regulations governing recognition of prior service and accessibility to residual long service leave credits in some circumstances.
These amendments also include changes which reflect the current practice in the building industry, including amending the definition of the building and construction industry to include data cabling, security installation and electronic communication and lowering the retirement age under the Building Act to 55. The language of both acts has also been updated and simplified.
The ACT government is committed to working with employers and employees to protect the entitlements of workers in the ACT. Similarly, the government is committed to assisting business to minimise costs, and these amendments are a clear demonstration of that commitment. The bill will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of both the building and cleaning long service leave schemes in the territory and ensure that these schemes continue to provide benefits for workers in these industries whilst minimising the administrative burden for employers.
Debate (on motion by Mr Mulcahy ) adjourned to the next sitting.
