Managing the employee ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic

Tuesday 24th March, 11am Melbourne time


In the highly unsettled economy as a result of the Corona Virus it is important for employers to understand some potential risks around changing or terminating arrangements with contractors. Particularly if those who contract for you are not being treated as arms length contractors and may be legally classified as employees.

This webinar will inform you of some potential risks and give you an idea of what you may need to do prior to making any changes.

Obviously at this time many businesses will be looking at ways to reduce business overheads. Smart operations will also be focusing the longer term and how to set yourself up to return to full operations when the virus emergency reduces. With this in mind we will also open the discussion as to how best to maintain your relationships with your key personal and what you need to do to be ready for capatalising on the return to business.
