Live Stream Only

This practical workshop focuses on the powers and workings of the Fair Work Commission (FWC), unfair dismissal and unlawful termination applications to FWC, common law claims for wrongful dismissal, drafting employment contracts considering both statute and common law and an overview of discrimination and equal opportunity laws. Key cases, legislation and practice notes relating to this practice area are also discussed.

Covid-19 has also resulted in legal and practical updates in this rapidly evolving and often complex area.


Presented By: James Tierney - Barrister, Victorian Bar

Essential workshops are for lawyers new to or wanting to update knowledge in a particular practice area. Workshops are interactive, practical and aim to cover the essential skills, knowledge and expertise required for that particular area.

In light of the recent COVID-19 updates and associated restrictions; Leo Cussen Centre for Law considers that it is in the best interests of all stakeholders for all upcoming Workshops to be held remotely. 

What this means:

  • Workshops will be held on the same date, at the same time as originally scheduled, in an online live-stream format for the foreseeable future;
  • Leo Cussen has successfully hosted workshops, seminars and conferences remotely including interactive sessions and we hope you enjoy attending the program from the convenience of your own environment.
