Pre-ordered ebooks,Employment Law,Fourth Annual Melbourne Employment Law Conference
21 & 22 February 2019

Our annual employment law conference (held at the Gold Coast in August every year) 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 2019 for all those who couldn’t get to the Gold Coast. This year’s employment law conference explores some of the major issues troubling employers and their advisors, from choosing the right engagement type when hiring employees, to managing change and redundancy in the workplace. We also examine the effect of the #metoo movement, the rising gig economy, as well as how to manage a flexible workplace with inflexible staff.
