In this issue: we look at a union’s contravention of the general protection laws; new legislation that will expand the powers of the federal building industry regulator; the Fair Work Commission’s ruling on urine testing and its implications for employers; a Fair Work Commission ruling affirming reinstatement as the primary remedy in cases of unfair dismissal; a decision supporting state governments’ building and construction codes of conduct; discerning adverse action from lawful industrial action; and guidance on requiring compliance with a social media policy applying outside the workplace.
