In Australia, many employers started out the year full of optimism that 2021 would be a less disruptive year than 2020. Employers thought the new year would provide opportunities to get strategic planning back on track and progress the human resources projects that were put on the backburner during the chaos of COVID-19 in 2020.
However, for many employers, that was certainly not the case. Extended lockdowns in many states and territories of Australia had employers on the back-foot yet again, with many managers spending all of their time reacting to matters, rather than proactively looking at HR issues.
It is no wonder then, that so many of those tasked with people management responsibilities have perhaps not had as much time to focus on some of 2021’s most significant employment law issues.
During the webinar, we will review the noteworthy employment law topics of 2021 and outline a roadmap that Australian employers can use to plan for the employment-related issues they are likely to face in 2022.
What Will You Take Away From the Session?
During the course of the webinar, our presenters will review the following employment-law issues of 2021:
The impact of COVID-19 on employment in Australia, including increased flexible working, working from home and mandatory vaccinations
Changes to casual employment, including casual conversion requirements
The legislative amendments following the government’s response to the Respect@Work report on sexual harassment
Changes to employer superannuation contributions
Our presenters will also provide you with a practical roadmap to ensure that you have properly taken account of the matters listed above (including the opportunities they provide), as well as the employment-law issues likely to arise in 2022.
There will also be an opportunity to participate in an interactive Q&A session.
Who Should Attend?
This seminar is suitable for HR personnel, in-house legal counsel and any senior manager or business owner who is responsible for the management of Australian employees.
