HIA Virtual Trade Night

{{ tag.label }} {{ tag.label }} $vuetify.icons.faTimes
Engaging and in-depth look at business and industry processes and implications that could impact your business.

Over the past 18 months the Federal Government has made significant changes to the industrial relations system.

Learn about the changes that will impact your employees and contractors at the April 2024 HIA Virtual Trade Night. Topics that will be covered include:

  • changes to penalties, including the new offence of wage theft
  • the impact of the reforms on independent contracting, including the new definition of employment and the new role of the Fair Work Commission in determining disputes about unfair contract terms
  • the expanded role and powers of unions
  • changes to casual employment arrangements
  • the new right to disconnect
  • changes to the obligations in relation to preventing sexual harassment at the workplace, include the new positive duty to take steps to eliminate sexual harassment and a prohibition on conduct that could result in a hostile work environment
  • changes to the National Employment Standards to include 10 days paid family and domestic violence leave and superannuation.

Attendees will also receive an update on economic conditions for the Victorian residential building sector.
