Review of EOWA Act and Agency, 2009

Filed under Update

During 2009 the Minister of the Status of Women ordered a review of the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act (EOWWA), and the agency charged with overseeing the Act, Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA). The review was asked to consider how effective both the Act and the Agency were in promoting equal opportunity for women in the workplace. The consultations have been completed and the report is available below. We are now awaiting the Federal Government’s response.
