DEBATES - Wednesday 19 August 1981 prov1S10ns of subclause 6(2) which has been proposed to be deleted. In place of that provision, a new clause is to be inserted to ensure that no arrangement is made between the employer and employee for the latter to be paid an amount of money in lieu of actually taking annual leave. This protects all parties against what is a reasonably common abuse of annual leave provisions. Amendment agreed to. Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendment 52.8. The reason for this is that the present prov1s1on is in terms unfamiliar to industrial practitioners and has been replaced by a subclause, the wording of which has been agreed to by both employer and trade union groups. It means the same thing. Amendment agreed to. Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendment 52.9. This is a drafting requirement. Amendment agreed to. Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendment 52.10. This is to correct a typographical error. Amendment agreed to. Clause 6, as amended, agreed to. Clause 7: Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendments 52.11 to 52.16. The reason for amendment 52.11 is that common industrial usage invariably utilises the term 'qualifying service' rather than 'qualifying employment'. Amendments 52.12 and 52.13 are to conform with the heading alterations. Amendments 52.14, 52.15 and 52.16 are to correct typographical errors. Amendments agreed to. Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendments 52.17 and 52.18. The deletion in amendment 52.17 removes any suggestion of retrospectivity in this provision and there is no similar provision in the existing act. Amendment 52.18 is to conform with the change in the heading of the clause. Amendments agreed to. Clause 7, as amended, agreed to. Clauses 8 and 9 agreed to. Clause 10: Mr EVERINGHAM: I move amendments 52.19 to 52.27. Amendment 52.19 is to correct a typographical error. Amendment 52.20 is a drafting amendment. Amendment 52.21 is to conform with common industrial usage. 1308
