The Australian Information Industry Association in collaboration with Engineers Australia have designed a four-part webinar series that addresses mental health and wellness in the current climate of extreme uncertainty and stress.

The second webinar of the series, “COVID-19 – employment law and working arrangements. What’s Fair?” will address what the current work arrangements mean for employee and employer and what rights either party have now that may differ to “normal” working conditions.

You will be given the rare opportunity to ask questions and, as both Commissioners are deemed to be independent as they’re not engaged by employee or employer, they will provide an unbiased view.

Key takeaways

  • Find out what entitlements you have, specifically in relation to taking leave
  • Whether working from home has any legal implications; and
  • Learn what employees/employers will need to know when businesses re-open

Speaker line-up

Sally Sievers | Anti-Discrimination Commissioner, NT

Sally has focused the Commission’s work on areas of inequality in the Northern Territory including race and disability discrimination and challenging discrimination experienced by women, girls and families in the work place.

She has also spoken on and worked with others on diversity and inclusion. This includes developing Unconscious Bias workshops, and promoting the benefits of flexible work place arrangements for the whole work force, and the need for courageous leadership to ensure progress towards diversity and inclusion, are sustained.

Susan Booth | Fair Work Commissioner, QLD

Prior to her current appointment, Susan was a Senior Member with the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal. She has experience within the Queensland public service and legal practice in the area of workplace relations, and has also served as an Anti-Discrimination Commissioner in Queensland.
