Employers and Human Resource Practitioners are, more and more, needing to confront social issues in the workplace.

Office romances remain a media interest and occupational hazard. Sexual harassment has regained attention with the #metoo campaign. Pay equity remains a challenge for business. And this year, domestic violence leave is likely to obtain recognition in the modern award review process. Business needs to be attuned to these, and other social issues, for the overall benefit and health of the business.

Join HR Minds for a robust discussion on these issues presented by Amber Sharp and James Mattson, both Partners in Workplace at Bartier Perry Lawyers. Amber and James will explore what employers can do to prepare for and manage the impact of these issues on the workplace.
