  • Thursday 23 Nov 2023
  • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • Online

It has been an eventful 12 months in Australia’s employment law and industrial relations landscape. A suite of changes to the Fair Work Act 2009 (and with more to come) have taken a rolling effect throughout 2023. This webinar will discuss the impacts of these changes and provide a useful summary of the key decisions in 2023 relevant to the water sector.

Areas of focus will include:

  • Key unfair dismissal and general protections decisions
  • Other important case law that should be on your radar
  • The new positive duty on employers to prevent sexual harassment
  • New enterprise bargaining powers
  • The proposed psychological health regulations
