The labour market in Australia is in a state of dramatic change. Traditional employment positions have been in decline, while flexible non-traditional and “gig economy” forms of work are on the rise. The Fair Work Ombudsman has recently filed its landmark prosecution against food delivery service, Foodora. The case follows significant attention and litigation around the characterisation of independent contractors, including in unfair dismissal claims lodged against Uber on the basis that its drivers are employees.
What is the significance of a worker being a contractor or employee? What business risks arise from mischaracterisation? How can we best protect ourselves and our business from risks associated with sham contracting? What developments should we expect and plan for in the future?
Join national law firm Moray & Agnew for this topical and interactive panel discussion on key issues around sham contracting and the gig economy. Hear from industry experts, including CXC Global’s own Paul Chiswick, on these and more important workforce management questions.
