What is the protection?
A person must not deliberately make a false or misleading representation about:
- another person’s duty to engage in industrial activity
- another person’s duty to disclose whether they, or another person, is or was a member of an industrial association and whether they have had any involvement in industrial activity.
An employer must not say they have a right to know whether an employee is a member of a union.
Are there exceptions?
This does not apply if the person to whom the representation is made would not be expected to rely on it.
