Industrial Relations Support Webinar - General Protections Claims - The Basics

Tuesday, 24 May 10:00am - 10:30am

Do you understand your obligations in relation to employees exercising their workplace rights?

Continuing our commitment to provide support to non-members during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Victorian Chamber is pleased to confirm the next webinar will be held on 24 May 2022 at 10 am.

Most employers are aware of the “unfair dismissal” provisions of the Fair Work Act 2009, but many are unaware of the unfair dismissal regime’s counterpart – the “general protections” or “adverse action” regime.

Employees can bring a claim against their employer if the employer has engaged in “adverse action” against that employee because the employee has exercised a “workplace right”.

This webinar will cover some of the key basics of general protections claims:

  • What is a “workplace right”, and when does an employer take “adverse action”;
  • How an employee makes a claim, and how an employer needs to respond;
  • Financial liability for employers found to have breached the general protections provisions; and
  • Practical tips for avoiding these claims, and how to position your business to defend against them.

We encourage business owners, managers and HR professionals to join this webinar to ensure you are equipped to comply with your obligations in this area.
