The only comprehensive, high level 2 day annual conference dealing exclusively with Industrial Relations Law.
The only comprehensive, high level 2 day annual conference dealing exclusively with Industrial Relations Law. Recent overhauls of WHS legislation and Fair Work Australia becoming the Fair Work Commission has stirred the pot again in this politically active practice area. An exposure draft which determines to amalgamate 5 pieces of historic legislation into one amorphous Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill is already making front page news before its release.
Implications of this bill will be addressed in a discussion panel. Common law issues such as enterprise agreements, adverse action, executive remuneration, social media and restraints of trade will also be dealt with at the 7th Annual Workplace and Industrial Relations National Conference. Work place bullying comprises one half of all work place complaints. This ubiquitous phenomenon is fast becoming the most controversial issue in employment relations in Australia and deservedly gets its own discussion panel.
Topics covered: Updates from the Fair Work Commission and the Fair Work Ombudsman The changing landscape around adverse action Discussion Panel: Harmonisation of anti-discrimination laws Enterprise Bargaining Executive Remuneration The Coalition vision and Workplace Relations Workplace Health and Safety update Discussion Panel: Work place bullying Interrelation between workplace performance management and acute anxiety claims and how to manage them Workplace Health & Safety Act 12 months on: a view from the bar: Recent prosecutions under the Workplace Health & Safety Act Health: The new frontier in WHS laws Impacts of the changes of the Fair Work Act on the workplace Social media and the Industrial relations landscape Featuring a keynote address by the Shadow Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations highlighting the key objectives of the Liberal/National Party for 2013.
