The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid evolution of remote and hybrid working has brought with it significant change in Australian workplace law and the WHS regulatory environment.

2020 and 2021 has seen a significant increase in members seeking expert advice in relation to both workplace relations and WHS.

When combined with an already extremely complex workplace relations and WHS legal framework, it is more challenging than ever for Australian businesses to comply with regulation while balancing the needs of the business and individual employees.

With this complexity comes significant risk for businesses who may lack the internal capability to manage their workplace / WHS compliance responsibilities effectively. 

This webinar will explain:

  • The evolving HR and WHS advisory needs of members through the pandemic;
  • Modern HR best practice and obligations in a modern hybrid workplace;
  • Changing WHS regulations and obligations in the face of the Australia’s recent shift to the hybrid workplace;
  • WHS best practice and managing a remote workplace; and
  • Ongoing HR and WHS obligations associated with the continued pandemic state.

The webinar will be presented as a facilitated conversation with an opportunity to raise questions with FCB Group and HR Assured concerning any Employment Law or WHS matter impacting upon your association and/or members.
