Employment Relations Podcast #11 – Current and post COVID-19 employment restructuring: What options does your organisation have?


Authors: Chris Hartigan, Emily Haar

Service: Employment & Labour | Employment Relations Podcast | Work Health & Safety

In Episode 11 of our Employment Law for the Time Poor podcast, Chris Hartigan and Emily Haar discuss the particular requirements for implementing workforce change using the Job Keeper amendments to the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).

In particular what “reasonable” might mean, and what consultation actually requires.  Employers should both be considering how they keep going right now, but also what change they might need to implement on a more permanent basis, particularly when the current government initiatives are due to cease later this year.
