The Things You Must Know About Employment Law in 2018

Posted 30 January 2018.

​The Comms Council is pleased to offer an employment seminar presented by Anthony Drake - Partner Wynn Williams and trusted advisor to the communications industry.

Anthony will address the important issues around employment law since the change of government, including proposed changes that may affect your business.


Proposed new employment laws: The new Government has proposed a number of employment law changes which affect all business. The changes will affect: Trial periods; equal pay; minimum wages; increase in contractor rights; paid parental leave; Fair pay agreements; reinstatement; introduction of statutory redundancy compensation; and increased scope for minimum standards.

The right to disconnect: Modern workplace devices and practices increasingly require employees to be ‘connected’. What does this mean in relation to health and safety obligations and what are other countries doing?

#MeToo - The Weinstein effect: What are employer obligations when an incident becomes known and there is no formal complaint. Can a complainant make a ‘confidential’ or ‘off the record’ complaint?
