When: 16 March 2021, 6-8pm
The impact of COVID-19 is expected to have lasting changes for Australian workplaces.
As we begin the return to work, our second CPD seminar for 2021 will see two employment law experts discuss these unique challenges and their ongoing implications for employees and employers.
The topics to be discussed include:
- the implications of the dramatic increase in the prevalence of flexible working arrangements; and
- the fierce debate about whether it is lawful for employers to make COVID-19 vaccinations compulsory.
Mia Pantechis and Joe Murphy will deliver a joint presentation about what Australia's current workplace laws say about the obligations and rights of employers and employees in relation to these issues, and what reforms might be necessary moving forward.
Mia Pantechis is a Principal in the Employment and Industrial Law Section at Maurice Blackburn. Joe Murphy's work history includes, amongst other things, Managing Director of National Workplace at Australian Business Lawyers, Chief Advocate at the NSW Business Council and Special Counsel at Sparke Helmore Lawyers.
