Off the back of 2021’s changes to the Fair Work Act, employers and industry groups have been eagerly awaiting a test case for how to compliantly engage with casual workers.
We now have the outcome of two significant appeals that were before the High Court, which may put to rest concerns around misclassification, double dipping and sham contracting.
In our latest workforce risk report, we examine these court cases in detail, as well as recent disputes around new casual conversion legislation.
Additionally, we delve into:
- Further developments in vaccine mandates.
- Remote working and the liability for health and safety.
- Widespread underpayments of casuals in some of Australia’s biggest companies.
Having contingent workers as a core pillar of your workforce doesn’t need to be fraught with danger and uncertainty – read our risk report to be confident in making sure you’re protecting your company from financial and reputational damage.
