Employment, Labour & Safety Mid-Year Review – 2017

The Corrs Employment, Labour & Safety Team is pleased to present our fourth annual review of the Australian employment, labour and safety landscape.

In this year’s review, we examine the major legislative and policy developments, significant court and tribunal decisions, and key work health and safety (WHS) issues that have arisen over the last 12 months.

We also look ahead to what we see as the ‘Top 5’ employment, labour and safety issues that will be confronting Australian businesses in 2017-18 and beyond:

  • Tackling Modern Slavery and Ensuring Compliance across the Supply Chain

  • The Future of Enterprise Bargaining

  • The Debate over ‘One-Sided Flexibility’

  • WHS Inspection Blitzes

  • Broadening the Net of Accessorial Liability

We hope you find our 2017 review insightful and relevant.  If you wish to discuss anything raised in the review further, please don’t hesitate to contact one of our experts using the details listed to the right.
