Sydney | 27-28 November 2017

The employment law landscape in Australia is constantly changing with respect to legislative updates and case law decisions that impact how employers operate. Employment Law Matters Forum provides practical application of regulatory updates into an organisation's framework and how these obligations are being adhered to. If you would like to stay on top of new regulatory updates and your legal obligations as an employer, as well as manage and deal with workplace law issues, this forum is not to be missed. 
Employment Law Matter Forum (ELMF) provides updates and insights from the Fair Work Commission and Office of the Fair Work Ombudsman and examines trends in employment law, as well as major challenges ahead.
The event brings together leading legal experts and IR, ER, HR practitioners to share best-practice strategies on the most pertinent industrial relations and employee relations issues. It is designed to provide you with opportunities to attain practical advice that you can apply to work immediately. 
Some of the confirmed speakers include HR practitioners from Konica Minolta, Iluka Resources, Wargaming, Telstra and NMRA plus legal experts from Herbert Smith Freehills, Ashurst, Seyfarth Shaw and Maurice Blackburn.
To increase the interactivity of the sessions and to maximise the time you’ll spend at the event, we have crafted the programme to include case studies (presenting best-practice strategies), legal sessions (drawing out need-to-know insights from recent case rulings) and panel sessions (to  drive further in-depth discussion) on the following key topics:
