Employers need to update their parental leave, bullying and flexible work policies and make sure all employees are aware of changed regulations in those areas, as well as consultation requirements and right of entry for unions.
 
Those were the key messages from a webinar last week hosted by Australian Business Consulting & Solutions (ABCS) and Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors (ABLaw), which discussed the question: ‘Will changes to the Fair Work Act make it harder to do business?’
 
ABLaw’s Workplace Relations Director Joe Murphy and Special Counsel Alana Paterson explained the impact of recent changes to the Fair Work Act 2009, some of which came into effect this July and others that will be implemented in January 2014. They also highlighted changes to the Act likely to be made by the new Coalition Government.
 
More than 1200 people registered for the webinar, making it the most popular webinar hosted by ABC&S, publishers of WorkplaceInfo, WorkplaceOHS and HRAdvance.
