LIV Submission to the Inquiry into the Victorian On-Demand Workforce

LIV Submission to the Inquiry into the Victorian On-Demand Workforce

By Workplace Relations Section

Workplace Relations 


The LIV has made a submission to the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions' Inquiry into the Victorian On-Demand Workforce (the 'gig economy'). 

The LIV submits that the on-demand workforce is made up of, primarily, vulnerable workers (for example low - skilled workers, migrant workers, or those otherwise unable to secure work in the ‘traditional’ labour market). As such, legislative policy should reflect the need to protect the working conditions of those people.

However, that goal needs to be weighed against the economic and social benefits of many of the services provided through the on-demand workforce, and the need for regulation to ensure the economic viability of those businesses in Australia.
