University Matters Issue 331 October 2016
Welcome to the 2016 edition of University Matters—a publication for the Society of University Lawyers Annual Conference, discussing legal issues affecting the university sector in Australia. Sparke Helmore has a proud history of working with universities and currently works with 10 institutions across the country.
In this issue, we discuss best practice data security for universities, particularly in circumstances where data is held by a third party service provider.
We also look at casual employment contracts and how continuous periods of casual service before permanent employment may be counted as part of an employee's total tenure.
