    In light of the precautions around the COVID-19 virus, this seminar will now be offered entirely online. A weblink will be provided to registrants prior to the event.
    With major uncovering of underpayments in corporate Australia throughout 2019, NSW Labor Lawyers launches its CLE program with a focus on how employees can pursue and employers can avoid underpayment in Australia.
     
    What are the avenues for an employee to pursue their entitlements in Australia? What are the additional penalties and protections that were put in place over the last year? On the eve of a new Senate inquiry into underpayments, what are the likely procedural reforms that we will see in underpayment law, and what future for the criminalisation of wage theft? And for employers, what avenues are there to monitor compliance with wage laws, and resolve underpayment issues in the workplace early to avoid damage to corporate reputation and future liability?
     
    These questions are more will be answered by Ruth Nocka, employment law Partner at Dentons, and Adam Guy, barrister at HB Higgins Chambers - two experts with a long professional history of representing employees and employers in wage disputes.
    This is a FREE event but donations to the Society are welcome to cover event costs.
