Employment Law Update

Level 10, 99 Elizabeth St
Sydney NSW 2000

Currently directors, franchisors, principal contractors, HR managers and even external advisors, such as lawyers, can be ordered to pay penalties and compensation for being knowingly involved in wage underpayments. Ingmar Taylor SC will discuss the circumstances where individuals and external advisers can be held to be liable, including the recent decision of FWO v Blue Impression Pty Ltd [2017] FCCA 810, where an external accounting firm was found to be liable for wage underpayments by its client. 

Oshie Fagir will also be discussing a series of recent Federal Court decisions and their practical consequences. These cases have indicated, or confirmed, that the decisions of the Fair Work Commission in arbitrations under enterprise agreements are largely invulnerable to review by the Courts - in other words they cannot be 'appealed' to the Federal Court. The implications of these decisions for parties to enterprise agreements are not currently well understood.

This discussion will be Moderated by Kellie Edwards.
 
Please join us for drinks and canapes after the seminar.

Medical Negligence

Level 10, 99 Elizabeth Street
Sydney NSW 2000

Short on principle and predictability – Damages for pure mental harm presented by Richard Sergi 

Many medical negligence claims include claims for so-called nervous shock. As with other aspects of the common law in general and medical negligence in particular, claims for nervous shock must be considered within the context of the Civil Liability Act 2002. This seminar addresses the fundamentals of Part 3 of the Civil Liability Act 2002.

Medical Manslaughter in Australia presented by Ben Bradley

Medical Manslaughter in Australia: the last medical practitioner to have been successfully prosecuted for manslaughter was in 1843. This presentation considers how gross must the standard of conduct of a medical practitioner be before the law will impose criminal sanctions for conduct or omission resulting in death?

This seminar will be moderated by Richard Cheney SC.

Please join us for drinks and canapés after the seminar.
