Competitive neutrality investigation report

This investigation report was released on 17 June 2002.

The investigation resulted from a complaint that alleged that the Commonwealth Government was subsidising the operation of OzJobs and that OzJobs was not paying payroll taxes on a basis comparable to that of its private sector competitors.

Discussions with the complainant also indicated specific concerns that OzJobs may not be paying comparable insurance premiums (including public liability and workers compensation coverage).
