Caretaker period

On 8 May 2016 the Prime Minister of Australia, the Hon Malcolm Turnbull MP, announced a federal election would be held on 2 July 2016 and as such the Australian Government has assumed a caretaker role.

As this website is hosted by the Department of Employment, only media releases which adhere to Caretaker Conventions will be published to this website until the result of the election has been determined.
