Substantive Law

Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC Australia

The past 12 months has seen significant changes to the employee relations landscape.  From changes to enterprise bargaining, though to the right to disconnect, same job same pay, new causal and employee definitions (and more), the amendments to the Fair Work Act will impact the way we do business. Join Page Seager Lawyers in this member update on the recent tranche of amendments to industrial relations laws.

Page Seager’s Employment lawyers will:

  • Summarise the changes brought about by the Closing Loopholes legislation passed in late 2023 and early 2024.
  • Explain how these changes may impact employers.
  • Provide practical guidance on compliance.
