Closing Loopholes Webinar Series

In the Closing Loopholes legislation, the government has made sweeping changes to the employment law landscape in Australia.

A number of key changes start on 26 August 2024 and will affect most Australian employers.

To help you prepare, we’re hosting a four-part webinar series where we will break down these key changes and help you understand what they will mean for your business. We will also go over what you need to do to be ready for the changes.

These webinars will be in a Q&A format to allow you to ask questions of our presenters.

Join our complimentary series of webinars to learn more.
