Workplace Matters 1331 August 2018
Welcome to Issue 13 of Workplace Matters, a digital publication bringing you the latest legal updates in safety and employment directly from our experts.
This issue takes a look back at the past 12 months with a particular focus on the end of the harmonised work health and safety model as well as the introduction of industrial manslaughter in other harmonised jurisdictions.
Following a wave of media attention this year, the prevalence of workplace sexual harassment has become a hot topic. We take a close look at what is deemed to be appropriate and inappropriate workplace behaviour, and what employers should do to create a safe and comfortable environment for all workers.
Finally, we summarise some recent legislative updates and decisions that have impacted workplace law.
