Continuing contract secured through IEU support

6 February, 2024

An IEU member who had been on a fixed-term contract for three years has secured a continuing (permanent) position thanks to IEU support and changes to legislation.

IEU Industrial Services Officer Mark Moorhead said the member was initially placed on another one year fixed-term contract for 2024 for the same work with continuity of employment.

“We pointed out to the employer this was in breach of the new fixed-term contract provisions in the Fair Work Act, and they amended the member’s contract so it was continuing,” Mark said.

“This was a great result for the member, who now has increased job security.
