Session 3: Right to Disconnect and Other New Workplace Rights

Experience in operating within the fair work system used to count for a lot, but an overwhelming amount of change has occurred over the last 12 months. Leaders relying on their understanding of the Fair Work Act 2009 from before 2023 may find that their knowledge is already very much out of date.

In our Fair work checkup series 2024, EMA Consulting takes a closer look at specific areas of interest to help you update your knowledge for 2024 and beyond.

This series is free to attend.

Session 3 of 3 is a closer look at some new rights for unions and employees and how to plan for and respond to their operation.

This session will be an in-person networking session (Adelaide CBD). Registration is essential as attendance is limited.

We will explore the new disputes jurisdiction for the ‘right to disconnect’ and how it is likely to operate, including what questions to ask to identify where risk might exist in your organisation.  We will also look at what’s not written in the legislation, including psychosocial hazards and other employer obligations that impact this new right. Bring your safety officers along to this one.

We take a look at some new workplace rights including the new delegates rights and changes to union right of entry that impact the way that industrial relations is done at Australian workplaces.  We will discuss the assent of union-related rights, how they will impact your existing practices and what it will mean to live with them.

There will be opportunity for Q&A on the day, or feel free to submit questions in advance.  Attendees are warmly invited to share in complimentary morning tea and networking following the event.
