General Protections and Adverse Action - The Employee's New Sword?
This seminar looks at Part 3-1 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) (FWA) entitled "General Protections". The Part confers on employees and others significant new rights and remedies to those which existed prior to the FWA's commencement on 1 July 2009. On their face, the provisions of Part 3-1 have the scope to be applied broadly and to support a range of actions and remedies.
