The Evolving Workplace: Employment & Safety - year in review16 December 2020
Welcome to the eighth instalment of The Evolving Workplace podcast series.
In this episode Roland Hassall and Bill Kritharas reflect on significant workplace developments in a year like no other. Bill Kritharas, our National Safety Service Line Leader, provides a recap of the key changes and implications of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW), and discusses the Productivity Commission’s report and recommendations regarding the modification of work health and safety (WHS) laws to ensure psycho-social safety is addressed in the same way as physical WHS risks.
Roland Hassall, our National Employment Service Line Leader, talks about what the Industrial Relations Omnibus Bill 2020 seeks to address following the national review of Industrial Relations—casual employment, awards, enterprise agreement and underpayments, as well as return to work issues faced by employers in the COVID-19 environment.
