Lay Offs


It’s been revealed some Canberra small businesses are laying off staff as part of restructuring their operations because of the Federal Government crackdown on the use of consultants.

The Commonwealth’s use of external contractors is drying up…

that’s the message from Business Groups and advisors who say the situation has reached a crunch point.

It’s understood, businesses are downsizing.. or asking staff to take leave without pay.

The Canberra Business Chamber says there are potentially hundreds of A.C.T. Locals who could be affected…

Last month, the Government moved to wind-back excessive outsourcing – in favour of direct employment within its own agencies.
