This webinar is now available to download from the Fair Work Ombudsman 

I was also interested to see the FWO’s response to this FAQ:

 What award provides coverage for accountancy practices?

In the Australian Industrial Relations Commission (AIRC) decision delivered on 4 December 2009, [2009] AIRCFB945, the AIRC clarified the coverage of the Miscellaneous Award 2010 and made it clear that accountants are not covered by the Miscellaneous Award. We are of the opinion that accountants with formal qualifications, undertaking the typical duties of an accountant with formal qualifications within an accountancy practice, are not covered by a modern award.
