Webinars

We’re passionate about supporting workers across Australia with information about their rights at work – so in addition to our fact sheets, we also deliver information through webinars. Here’s a small selection.

Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations in the Workplace

JobWatch presented the webinar ‘Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations in the Workplace’ on Tuesday 12 October 2021.

In this session, we examined the main employment law rights you should be familiar with when assisting people who are impacted by COVID-19 vaccine mandates in the workplace. These include:

  • Lawful and reasonable directions
  • Occupational health and safety laws
  • Discrimination law
  • Privacy law
  • Unfair dismissal claims

If you’re supporting clients affected by a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in their workplace, you need to know about these employment rights!

Family Violence and Employment Law

JobWatch presented the webinar ‘Family Violence and Employment Law’ on Thursday 24 June 2021.

It gives an overview of employment law topics relevant to people affected by family violence (FV). We know that maintaining employment for people experiencing FV is extremely important for their security, independence and self-esteem. Over the years, we have provided advice and representation to clients, usually women, whose experience of FV has had a detrimental impact on their employment.

In this session, we examined the main employment law rights you should be familiar with when assisting people who are experiencing FV, including:

  • Right to request flexible working arrangements
  • Right to certain types of leave
  • Unfair dismissal
  • General protections disputes
  • OHS considerations

If you’re supporting clients affected by FV and you’re trying to help them maintain their employment and financial stability, you need to know about these employment rights!

You can catch up on the webinar on YouTube now, as well as download the Powerpoint presentation.
