‘More to come’: Minister for Women insists Respect@Work commitments not abandoned

Article image for ‘More to come’: Minister for Women insists Respect@Work commitments not abandoned

The Minister for Women has defended the federal government’s highly criticised response to recommendations from the Respect@Work report. 

The Senate passed the Sex Discrimination and Fair Work (Respect at Work) Amendment Bill 2021 to bring into law six recommendations from the report.

Deborah Knight described the bill as “a bit of a wasted opportunity” for addressing “just six” when Prime Minister Scott Morrison committed to adopting every recommendation.

Minister Marise Payne insisted Mr Morrison’s promise would be seen through.

Marise Payne: “This is the first iteration of the legislative response.”

Deborah Knight: “So there will be more commitments to come?”

Marise Payne: “That is exactly right.

“This is the first step – these are the ones we were able to proceed or prioritise in this instance and there are more to come.”
