There is high demand for workplace flexibility amongst the Gen Y and Millennials.  Businesses that don’t implement flexibility risk of losing the top talent.  This session considers the issues from both the management perspective and staff perspective - looking at how risks can be managed and what you can do to facilitate a beneficial working relationship for all parties.   This session covers:

  • The right to request flexible working arrangements under the Fair Work Act
  • Working from home and other flexible practices– benefits and risks and proper management
  • Bring your own device – understanding the risks involved with BYOD policies for both management and staff
  • Contractor vs employee – understanding the importance of this distinction in flexible arrangements and where the line can be blurred
