The Law and Your employees - A Practical Workshop on understanding your obligations as an employer

Jackson McDonald is pleased to offer a full day workshop in Karratha for Indigenous corporations in the area of employment law and human resources, presented by our Workplace Relations team. 

You may have heard comments along the lines of: 

 • “don’t worry, restraint clauses are unenforceable”

• “you can’t fire anybody unless you have given them three warnings”

• “if you pay an all-inclusive annual salary or hourly rate you don’t have to worry about paying in accordance with an award”

This workshop aims to dispel these common employment law myths and will also provide a practical understanding of how the workplace relations system operates, clarify minimum obligations and provide tips on how to ensure your organisation is complying with the law. 

Date:  Thursday 3rd November 2016

Venue:  Karratha International Hotel, Goldfinch meeting Room

Time:  9:30am - 4:30pm
