Labor forceAdalias solutions to Australia’s labour force problem will be discussed at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Adelaide on May 13.
The Australian government will also announce that the National Disability Insurance Scheme will be abolished from July 1, 2018.
The plan also seeks to address Australia’s chronic underfunding of disability insurance.
Labor is pushing to reform the Australian National Disability Benefit Scheme (ANDB), which provides a pension and insurance payment to Australians who have worked in the public or private sector for at least two years.
The scheme was established in 1949 as a way of providing assistance to people with disabilities who were unable to work because of a disability.
The ANDB was replaced by the Disability Support Pension (DSP) in 2012.
The proposal to replace the ANDB with the DSP was endorsed by the Productivity Commission in January this year, and it was confirmed by the Federal Government in March.
The new proposal calls for the DSB to be scrapped from July 2018.
In March, the Federal Parliament passed legislation that will extend the time for an unemployed person to apply for unemployment benefits, up to 18 months.
However, it is not clear whether that extension will be extended to all unemployed people.
The plan to reform unemployment benefits is one of a series of proposals to reform Australia’s disability insurance system, which was put forward in the recent Budget.
The new disability insurance plan will be introduced as part of a wider package of measures to help Australians with disabilities.
Earlier this month, the Government announced a $200 million fund to fund the ANDSS to replace and improve the current system of disability benefits.
