Overview (Program Summary)
With a new Labor government elected, and the recent Jobs Summit, employment law reform is firmly on the agenda. Will there be a new IR Bill? Do Gig workers need additional protections? What does a more broad implementation of the Respect@Work recommendations mean for your workplace? Will parental leave change? Employment law expert Michael Byrnes will discuss these questions and what else the new government might have in store to shake up employment relations and create more jobs. Join us for a roundtable lunch at Swaab's offices moderated by Salesforce Senior Director of Global Employment Law, Lori Middlehurst.
