New Employment Legislation

New Employment Legislation
Add to CPD Planner


The Employment Relations Amendment Act received Royal Assent on 11 December 2018 with most of the changes taking effect on 6 May this year. This webinar will consider the key legislative changes for you and your clients when preparing and negotiating contracts and revising work schedules.

This webinar will examine the practical implications of these changes so that you can provide your clients with effective advice. Additionally, we will consider a recent Employment Law Court case of interest concerning availability contracts.

Topics covered will include:

  • Hours of work and breaks
  • Protection for vulnerable workers
  • Collective bargaining and union rights
  • 90 day trials.

Learning objectives

After this webinar you will be:

  • Aware of the key employment law changes.
  • Able to apply this understanding when advising clients
