1. Legal Developments Arising from the Respect@Work Review
As part of the NSW Society of Labor Lawyers CPD Program, you are invited to join us for an in depth session on the legal developments arising from the Respect@Work review, featuring presentations from Associate Professor Belinda Smith (Labour and Anti-Discrimination Law, University of Sydney) and Professor Catherine Renshaw (Human Rights Law, Western Sydney University and Labor Candidate for North Sydney).
The session will consider the reforms introduced by the Sex Discrimination and Fair Work (Respect at Work) Amendment Act 2021 (Cth) including the introduction of sexual harassment stop orders and expansion of the Fair Work Commission’s anti-bullying jurisdiction. The seminar will also address which Respect@Work review recommendations were not proceeded with and what, if any, gaps still exist to promote safe working environments in Australia.
The session will be chaired by Penny Parker, Associate at Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and Society Committee Member.
This is a free CPD event but donations to the Society are welcome to cover event costs.
