 - Contractor or employee? Owner/drivers might be employees - Full Court Federal Court - Jamsek; Uber Eats driver a contractor - Gupta re Portier Pacific.
 - Future legislative changes? IR Reform Working Group? "Respect@Work" - Sexual Harassment National Inquiry Report 2020?

By attending this forum you will gain knowledge of significant case law, policy and legislative developments with insight on how such developments will affect organisations and practical tips.
