It is essential that employers operating in Australia understand the legal framework to ensure they maintain good employee relations and avoid falling foul of local employment law and practice.
This Employment Law Australia seminar, led by a partner from leading law firm Minter Ellison in Sydney, provides an introduction to Australian employment law and practice.
It provides a clear overview of the Australian employment framework and valuable insights into the key differences between Australian employment law and that of other countries, as well as highlighting recent changes and developments that may catch out overseas firms.
If you are considering establishing operations in Australia, or are responsible for employees based there, this expert-led Australian employment law course will give you the knowledge to advise colleagues with assurance.

End of seminar
I have over 20 years' experience working as an employment lawyer in Australia and London.
My clients call me for advice on all aspects of the employment relationship including the usual day to day issues (including performance management, change management and termination), discrimination, privacy, WHS and industrial relations. However, I am particularly well known for my expertise in dealing with senior executives, post employment restraints, corporate transactions and corporate governance, particularly in the field of remuneration and Australia's golden handshake regime.
I also enjoy working with our overseas clients and find my own overseas experience to be hugely beneficial in explaining Australian concepts in a way that makes sense from the Head Office perspective.
