Substantive Law

Overview (Program Summary)

Management of the workforce in every industry has been impacted to some extent by the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic.  After two years of continuing “unprecedented times”, it is timely to reflect on how employment and workplace law has developed and evolved, particularly with respect to the renewed focus on effective consultation and what it means to work flexibly.  

Our Employment Relations partners will provide an update on how the law in this space has “pivoted” and where workplace law may be headed in the near future, covering topics such as:

  • Consultation requirements
  • Stand downs 
  • Flexibility requests
  • Workplace mental health
  • Developments in worker-related claims

This session will be relevant to employers and in-house counsel advising their organisations.
