The Ensuring Integrity Bill is the name given to two bills introduced into the Parliament of Australia, the first being the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment (Ensuring Integrity) Bill 2017, a bill first introduced by the Turnbull Government in 2017,[3] and the Fair Work (Registered Organisations) Amendment (Ensuring Integrity) Bill 2019, a re-introduction of the bill in 2019 by the Morrison Government.[4] The bill proposes to:

  • give the Federal Court of Australia power to cancel the registration of a registered organisation (that is, a union or an employer organisation) or disqualify office-holders from holding an office within an organisation;
  • introduce offences for acting as an officeholder while disqualified; and
  • introduce a public interest test for the amalgamation of registered organisations.[5]

The bill was introduced in the aftermath of the Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption and particularly the revelation of misconduct within the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union.[3]
