Abstract:
Examines how the OHS statutes operate where 'the employer' is not a single entity, but: part of a contractual chain or business network; a partnership; an unincorporated association; a joint venture; part of a larger corporate group structure; or is in other ways separate from the person or entity with control over assets and decision-making concerning OHS. And in examining these fundamental legal issues, examples of situations in which duties are owed to a worker by more than one employer (or self-employed person) are highlighted. The extent to which the Australian OHS statutes impose liability on the 'group' or part of the group, rather than simply on single capital units, is also explored.
