Our annual employment law conference (held at the Gold Coast in July) draws HR professionals and employment lawyers from across the country. It is one of our most popular conferences and that is why we are repeating this event in Melbourne in February 2017 for those who couldn’t get to the Gold Coast. The conference examines the myriad of legal issues which have dominated the employment law landscape in the last twelve months, including the 7-Eleven saga, social media in and out of the workplace and adverse action claims.

We are delighted to include Commissioner Tanya Cirkovic of the Fair Work Commission amongst the expert faculty.
