Australia’s largest and most representative business network has welcomed the appointment of Anna Booth as Fair Work Ombudsman.

“ACCI congratulates Anna Booth on her appointment as the Fair Work Ombudsman and believe her rich experience will contribute positively to the workplace relations landscape in Australia,” ACCI chief executive Andrew McKellar said.

“Each interaction that we have had with Anna Booth has demonstrated her deep understanding of the industrial relations framework. Most recently this has included her involvement in the ongoing review of regulations surrounding registered organisations.”

As a former deputy president of the Fair Work Commission, Anna Booth brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding to this crucial role.

“ACCI remains committed to working collaboratively with the Fair Work Ombudsman and the federal government to achieve a robust and harmonious workplace relations environment,” Mr McKellar said.

“Anna Booth’s appointment presents an opportunity for ongoing constructive engagement with the Fair Work Ombudsman. As a priority, ACCI will continue to look for opportunities to assist members in promoting compliance through education.”

ACCI has also paid tribute to the outgoing Fair Work Ombudsman, Sandra Parker PSM.

“Sandra Parker has displayed exemplary service and dedication. She appreciated the importance of engaging constructively with employers and employees, and ACCI wishes her well for future endeavours,” Mr McKellar said.
