Modern day challenges and responsibilities for employers | MEL
Date: 15-May-2018
Venue: Holding Redlich Level 8, 555 Bourke Street
MELBOURNE
Time: 12:30pm to 2:00pm

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 Ben Marshall, Workplace Relations & Safety Group Partners in Workplace at Holding Redlich. Ben will explore what employers can do to prepare for and manage the impact of these issues on the workplace.
