Is your arts organisation steering through the choppy waters of employment law in these “unprecedented times”? Are you navigating questions around staffing levels and salaries in the face of a substantially changed creative sector? Join Arts Law and employment law experts Holding Redlich for this webinar exploring employment law issues as we navigate our way through the current pandemic. This is your opportunity to get answers to your burning questions about your obligations as an employer, relief payments that may be available to you and how to protect your organisation and your staff.

Arts Law lawyer, Suzanne Derry will be asking Holding Redlich’s Workplace Relations and Safety Partner, Charles Power to help with these challenging questions, with you, for you. We will examine the legal issues businesses and organisations in the arts sector are facing during this time.

The areas covered include:

  • Interaction between Government JobKeeper payments and employment law
  • Availability of JobKeeper payments to individuals with ABNs
  • WHS obligations to employees who are working from home or in the workplaces where there is a risk of exposure to the virus
  • Employee entitlements to personal leave and pandemic leave
  • Employee rights in relation to employer direction to take paid or unpaid leave
  • Stand down provisions – how do they operate and how can they be challenged?
  • Implementing changes to employment conditions

Tuesday 26 May
11am – 12pm

This session is specifically relevant to managers, directors, arts administrators, HR and anyone who wants to learn more about how employment law relates to their arts organisation.
