The Fair Work Commission, formerly known as Fair Work Australia, is the Australian industrial relations tribunal created by the Fair Work Act 2009 as part of the Rudd Government's reforms to industrial relations. Operations commenced on 1 July 2009. Ms Bernadette O'Neill is its current general manager. FWC's functions include the setting and varying of modern awards, minimum wage fixation, dispute resolution, the approval of enterprise agreements, and handling claims for unfair dismissal. It is the successor body to the Australian Industrial Relations Commission, though it also performs functions previously performed by the Workplace Authority, and the Australian Fair Pay Commission.
