Employment law in Australia is constantly evolving, and accordingly, it's an important area to ensure you are up to date on. Two of the more common emplyoment law issues relate to unfair dismissal, and disability discrimination. Issues around unfair dismissal, wage theft and other workplace law issues are becoming exceedingly relevant in today's 'gig economy', with unfair dismissal lawyers being highly sought after. Our employment law CPD courses can help establish foundational knowledge of employment law for those new to the practice area, and aid established workplace lawyers to remain informed of new changes and developments in employment legislation in Australia, our discrimination laws and the area of employment law more broadly.
