Hosted by Partner Mark Dunphy, this season focuses on four major issues confronting employers: workplace vaccinations, flexible work and returning to the office in the 'new normal', the impact of closed borders on migration and employment, and the issue of underpayments.
In this episode, listeners will hear from Mark Dunphy and Kristopher Kunasingam from our Employment & Workplace Relations team. Mark and Kris discuss migration issues, including the impact since COVID-19 closed Australia’s borders, how restrictions are affecting employers and the economy, and what might lie ahead once restrictions are lifted.
In this episode, listeners will hear from Mark Dunphy and Fay Calderone from our Employment & Workplace Relations team. Mark and Fay discuss why flexible work is so important in the ‘new normal’ brought about by COVID-19, why working from home is no longer seen as a ‘privilege’ and how to avoid the risk of proximity bias.
In this episode, listeners will hear from Mark Dunphy and Clare Kerley from the Employment and Workplace Relations Team. Mark and Clare discuss mandatory vaccinations in the workplace, including whether employers can mandate vaccinations, what proof is required and what to do if employees refuse to be vaccinated.
