Employment law and community expectations continue to evolve and change the scope and nature of duties of care owed by employers and senior management to employees and contractors. In some respects these changes have introduced genuinely 'new' areas of potential liability and, in other respects, simply serve as a reminder for businesses (and their advisers) of the need to actively manage the wide range of employment, workplace and safety claim risks.
This session will include a tour of regulatory and legal changes of note, a discussion of recent cases and examples and provide practical tips on areas of focus for legal practitioners and management teams.
