Discussion one: Ignorance is no defence for employment law wrong doing

There’s been a lot going on in employment law recently, especially in sexual harassment, domestic violence leave and pay secrecy.

Business owners responsible for teams and workplace matters could be slapped with a significant fine if they get things wrong or if executives/senior managers in their business do.

Unfortunately, pleading ignorance is no defence if you’re an accessory to workplace wrong doing. Join this session to understand the changes in employment law and how you can equip your team to avoid any wrong doing.

Key takeaways:

  1. Prohibiting sexual harassment and positive obligations on employers

  2. Prohibiting pay secrecy

  3. Alternative and flexible working arrangements

  4. Paid family and domestic violence leave

  5. Clarifying the Better of Overall Test and Small Claims Cap increase and more accessibility.

Discussion two: Inheritance: Protecting your hard work

Learn how to safeguard your hard-earned assets for generations to come. Master the intricacies of estate planning and Will writing to ensure your wealth distribution goes according to your wishes.

A well-considered Estate Plan including a Will is a fundamental as its purpose is to provide clear instruction of the distribution of wealth to beneficiaries. Around 40% of Australians don’t have a Will, and if you’re one of them, a Will should be your priority.

Key takeaways:

  1. Understanding what constitutes your estate

  2. Deciphering wealth transfer

  3. Choosing the beneficiaries and defining their roles

  4. Assessing risks and implementing defence mechanisms

  5. The importance of collaborative advice for legal, tax, and financial planning.
