Is the Rule of Law Under Threat in Australia?—Seminar invitation

Wednesday, June 09, 2021

I don’t think that we have ever before promoted a conference by another organisation. But this free online seminar is, we think, worth bringing to your attention.

The Rule of Law Education Centre is running a free online seminar
Next Tuesday 15 June from 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm (EST)

Topic: Are we witnessing the death of the presumption of innocence? And does this matter? More...


Deliveroo decision is NOT a win for unions. Just normal stuff!

Sunday, May 23, 2021

There’s a lot of excitement coming from the union movement over the recent ‘Deliveroo’ decision. ‘This is the end of gig’ they say.

They are excited because the Fair Work Commission (FWC) has declared that Deliveroo food deliverers are employees and not independent contractors.  More...


‘Homework’ takes on a totally new meaning … for adults!

Friday, March 19, 2021

The global energy giant BP has told around 25,000 of its staff that work from home is now permanent. This is confirmation that ‘home-work’ is now globally locked in and not a temporary Covid ‘thing’.

BP is selling offices and moving to smaller premises as staff move to working two days and more from home. This is evidence of a working revolution. It’s a revolution that will throw the legal, academic, tax and political work-regulation establishment into utter confusion.  More...


Australian unions see flying ‘gig’ pigs landing from the UK

Wednesday, February 24, 2021

You may have seen reports that the UK’s top court has decided that Uber drivers are not independent contractors. The UK decision seems to support the unions’ campaign against the gig economy. It gives the appearance of international support for Federal Labor’s anti-gig (anti-small business) policy announced earlier this month.  More...


California Attacks Santa Claus – A Victorian Agenda?

Tuesday, December 22, 2020

We’ve covered before the weird laws in California (called AB5) that have made self-employment illegal. On the evidence, it seems that these laws have pushed California’s unemployment rate to 50 per cent higher than the US average. The laws came into force on 1 January this year. But it’s now impacting on Christmas.  More...


Reforming the ATO – An economic recovery agenda

Thursday, October 29, 2020

At Self-Employed Australia we’ve been campaigning for a heck of a long time for reform of the ATO in the way it handles disputes—particularly with small business people. In the economic recovery from Covid, reform of the ATO must assume high importance.

Fair treatment of taxpayers is essential and this is not occurring if you find yourself in dispute with the ATO. The tax administration laws and the tax system are ‘stacked’ to enable the ATO to abuse its powers. This is bad for society and the economy.  More...


Victorian Labor – The politically walking dead

Wednesday, October 21, 2020

As a group, the Victorian ALP is politically walking dead. It cannot win the next state election in November 2022.

That is a pretty big claim. Predicting an election outcome two years out is foolish by any measure. But here’s the reasoning.

In Australia’s current political environment each major party can only rely on a locked-on vote of about 35 per cent each. The task at every election is to grab enough of the remaining 30 per cent swinging voters to end up with 50 per cent plus one on election day. More...


Defeat Dan’s war against the self-employed

Monday, October 12, 2020

The Victorian Premier’s Department invited us to respond to the Victorian report on the gig economy. Silly them!

The gig economy report is a con. It’s a Trojan Horse designed to unleash the dogs of (legal) war against self-employed people in Victoria and across Australia. We expressed our massive opposition to this when the report was released in July this year and Premier Andrews stated his keen support to implement the report’s recommendations.  More...


Your Vote is your Power – Put Labor last – Victorian Council Elections

Thursday, October 01, 2020

Victorian’s feel powerless. But we say: use your VOTE this council election.

Whether you believe that the lockdown is necessary or not, the Victorian Covid-19 mess is the direct result of the huge failures of the Andrews’ Labor government. They admit this.

Politicians only understand your VOTE.  More...


We seek prosecution of the Victorian government – Criminal failures

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

Today we have lodged with the Victorian WorkSafe Authority a letter requesting that the Authority prosecute the Victorian government over failures in relation to the Hotel Quarantine Containment Program. These failures have resulted in 765 deaths to date.  More...
