  • In our Events Update, we provide details of our final webinar for the year to be held on 9 December 2021 – do not miss your chance to register now.
  • In our Q&A section, we look at the rise of online medical certificates and answer commonly asked questions about their use and legitimacy.
  • In our Legislation Update, we review upcoming changes to Western Australia’s Work Health and Safety Laws and what this may mean for employers.
