Australia’s leading biannual employment law event series

Brisbane: 19 September | Sydney: 24 September | Melbourne: 26 September | Adelaide: 1 October |  Perth: 9 October 
 
Don’t miss the 6th Annual HR Law Masterclass Conference this September & October, Australia’s must-attend employment law event series, featuring case reviews and legal insight on key issues shaping HR.

HR risks are heightening in many areas due to the pace of workplace change. HR and workplace issues are increasing in prominence and complexity – from new approaches to talent management, mental health, terminations, workplace investigations, bullying, harassment, and other forms of inappropriate workplace conduct. Adopting and integrating strong policies and practices around all of these areas is becoming an increasingly important mandate for employers to ensure a cohesive, engaged and productive workforce. 
 
Additionally, employers and HR professionals are dealing with more accessorial liabilities, exposures under adverse actions, and ensuring a more systematic approach to compliance.  
  
Don’t miss hearing up to 10 legal experts in a city near you, who will share current and emerging insight to keep you up to date and help you reduce your organisation’s risks.
 
You will gain up-to-the-minute insight on key HR issues, including:
  • Organisational culture and behavioural risks  
  • Workplace mental health and well-being 
  • Psychological injury claims, medical evidence and Return-to-Work 
  • Domestic violence leave and flexibility provisions
