Independent Contractors Act: Articles and Resources

Updated January 2007

In the 2004 Federal election campaign, the government committed itself to introduce legislation specifically to protect independent contractors' status. ICA welcomed this and, during 2005, lobbied privately and publicly on the details of the likely Act. Representations have been made to all major political parties as well as the media. ICA is continuing these efforts in 2006.
