Publisher: Sydney, N.S.W. OECD 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: November 2012 Includes bibliographical references "OECD Social, Employment and Migration Working Papers, No. 129"Summary: This report provides an overview of Australia's labour market policies, with a focus on income support benefits and employment assistance for people of working age. It traces historical developments partly since 1990 and since 1978 in the case of some data series. It describes changes in the composition of the unemployment benefit caseload with a decline in proportion that are formally treated as active jobseekers as unemployment benefits are now paid in some cases during periods of temporary incapacity, participation in training, and part-time work, and increases in the incidence of long-term benefit receipt, related partly to the increased coverage of non-jobseeker situations and the disadvantage profile of benefit recipients. The activity requirements applying to unemployment benefits are described together with successive reforms of the arrangements for enforcement, which have resulted in sharp swings in the incidence of penalties.Availability: (1)
