Exploring the right to disconnect and work from home

Date: Monday 25 March, 6-7pm
Where: Sydney CBD (venue to be advised)

A recent swathe of government reform has seen developments that were advanced by the COVID-19 pandemic become the law of Australia. The government has introduced a new right to disconnect, permitting workers in certain situations to bring an enforceable right to refuse to monitor or respond to out-of-office-hours communications. Meanwhile, the Fair Work Commission has provided important guidance in relation to working for home arrangements in recent decisions and in its review of modern awards. Join NSW Labor Lawyers for a CPD primer on these developments with barristers Ingmar Taylor SC and Phil Boncardo.

Ingmar Taylor SC (Barrister, Greenway Chambers) and Phil Boncardo (Barrister, Wardell Chambers) are specialists in industrial and employment law.

The event is free for members of the Society. For non-members, we ask that you make a $5 co-payment on the day of the event.

If this educational activity is relevant to your immediate or long-term needs in relation to your professional development and practice of the law, then you can claim one point per hour of formal presentation (Substantive Law CPD).

The CPD will be followed immediately by the Society's 2024 Annual General Meeting.
