Following a number of major changes to the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (FW Act), it is more important than ever for employers to know what to do and say when approached by a union or union official in their workplaces.
In the first of our 2023 webinar series, our Managing Director and Principal, Athena Koelmeyer will outline employer rights and obligations when it comes to dealing with unions.
Athena will explore the reasons why a union may enter the workplace and provide practical guidance for employers managing entry. The webinar will also provide an overview of the range of penalties which can be imposed on employers and union officials for not complying with their entry obligations under the FW Act.
This webinar is a “must attend” for HR professionals and front line managers responsible for overseeing any union presence in the workplace.
The webinar will begin at 11.00am (AEDT) on Tuesday, 28 February 2023.

There are only limited circumstances in which a union or union representative are entitled to enter the workplace of an employer. One such circumstance is permitted by work health and safety (WHS) legislation – and it permits a WHS entry permit holder to enter a workplace for the purpose of inquiring into a suspected contravention of WHS legislation that relates to, or affects, a relevant worker.
In this webinar, we tackle the challenges faced by employers when it comes to managing workplace behaviour, and discuss a range of interesting issues which can occur in both the traditional and hybrid workplace.
Many employees are excited about upcoming Christmas parties and end of year functions. However, increasingly complex employment laws and the rise in work-related complaints are causing employers to carefully think about hosting such events.
