Avoiding legal minefields: How to protect yourself as an employer as restrictions ease
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on industries around the globe. Undoubtedly, we’ll feel the effects for years to come – but for now, as we prepare for the economy to open back up, the focus for many organisations in the short term remains fixed firmly on survival.
For some employers, hasty decisions to ensure survival may come at the cost of complying with procedural responsibilities. We’re likely to see a substantial spike in disputes before the Fair Work Commission.
Our CEO Andrea and Employment Lawyer Jonathan Mamaril from NB Lawyers – lawyers for employers – discuss how to avoid getting stung and why following procedures for “mere show” won’t suffice.
You will learn:
- How to ensure you’re meeting termination obligations and alternatives (such as Jobkeeper)
- Employer obligations from Modern Awards, enterprise agreements, employment contracts and/or the Fair Work Act
- How to prepare for returning to work and the legal issues surrounding directions changing positions, job responsibilities, hours of work and locations
- Real case studies from organisations navigating costly mistakes.
