Sunday penalty rates: Federal Court backs Fair Work decision

The Australian/AAP,October 11, 2017

The Federal Court has backed the Fair Work Commission’s decision to slash Sunday penalty rates.

Unions representing hospitality and retail workers challenged the commission’s decision in June slash penalty rates for workers in the fast food, hospitality, retail and pharmacy sectors, starting on July 1.

On Wednesday, Justice Mordy Bromberg said the court found no jurisdictional error in the way the commission went about its task.
