The Australian Sign & Graphics Association (ASGA) has scheduled a webinar on ‘Employment Law - Living with COVID in the Workplace,’ for Thursday, November 4, 2.30pm AEDT. It's free for members, otherwise $33.
| Vernon Kingman,
The webinar will be moderated by Vernon Kingman from Kingman Strategies, with ASGA legal advisor Warwick Ryan of Hicksons Lawyers providing guidance on a variety of issues around COVID and workplace laws.
“There are many factors to consider for getting a business ready for the anticipated increase in COVID cases as restrictions are eased and borders are reopened,” ASGA said.
“What are the Fair Work rules around a business mandating that staff are vaccinated and does this vary according across states and industries? What type of penalties apply if staff are terminated due to refusing to vaccinate and the termination action proves to be unlawful? What is a business owner’s obligations for protecting staff against COVID in the workplace? As a business owner, can you ask staff to provide proof of vaccination status?”
|Warwick Ryan, Hicksons Lawyers|
Ryan will provide advice on these issues and more as they might relate to the sign industry. Moderator Vernon Kingman from Kingman Strategies has over 40 years of experience managing staff as previous owner of award-winning sign company, Kingman Visual.
ASGA president Julie Rochester urges everyone who owns or manages a sign business to attend the webinar:
“Many would know Warwick from the many years of providing legal advice to ASGA members. COVID has presented all business owners with challenges over the past 18 months, and we’ve been fortunate to have Warwick provide advice on it in webinar format to all industry as well as directly to ASGA members via its free IR advice line. Having some legal guidance on how we deal with the next stage from someone who has a good understanding of the sign industry is definitely reassuring. Anyone who owns or manages a sign business should definitely attend this webinar – COVID is not going to go away and we need to be on the front foot when it comes to managing its many business implications.”
The webinar is free for ASGA members and $33 for non-members.
