Abstract: The mooting late in 1976 of changes in the powers of the Commonwealth to retire its employees on grounds of redundancy sharpened interest in the legal dimension of security in public employment in Australia. If it were to become law, the Commonwealth Employees (Redeployment and Retirement) Bill 1976 would modestly consolidate the legislative powers of the Commonwealth to rationalize and retrench employees in line with changes in its operational requirements, but it would by no means resolve all the problems of legal uncertainty and insecurity that the present position allows.
