Reform of the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act 1999 – Regulation Impact Statement – Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs

On 9 March 2011, the Minister for the Status of Women, the Hon Kate Ellis MP, announced a suite of reforms to the Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act and Agency (EOWA), following the Government’s 2010 election commitment to retain and improve the Act and Agency and the 2009-10 review into the Act and Agency’s efficiency and effectiveness.  The Regulation Impact Statement draws an assessment that by retaining the existing level of light and responsive regulation, with improvements, the reforms strike a balance between ensuring compliance and easing the burden for business. 

The Regulation Impact Statement was prepared by the Office for Women in the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs and has been assessed as adequate by the Office of Best Practice Regulation.
