Our Employment Relations update puts the spotlight on employment reforms, rights and responsibilities likely to shape employment practices in 2021.
The Update will include presentations and discussions on:
• Employment reforms likely to be rolled out in 2021, exploring law changes in review, and those that have recently, or will soon, come into effect.
• How to undertake fair and robust employment investigations.
• The changing face of employee assistance programmes
• Some of the hot topics up for discussion include the long-awaited Holidays Act review with reference to recent case law, extension of sick leave entitlement, as well as a new topic on COVID-19 vaccinations.
Join us to start thinking about how to get your business prepared for the changes ahead.
