Inside IR: The Australian Industrial Relations Podcast – EP1: Jobs & Skills Summit, Part 1 – Multi-employer bargaining and termination of enterprise agreements

By Rohan Doyle and Natalie Gaspar

In our very first episode of Inside IR, partners Rohan Doyle and Natalie Gaspar begin their deep dive into the Federal Government’s recent Jobs & Skills Summit. We look at some of the key areas of focus coming out of the Summit, namely the proposal to limit the ability of employers to terminate enterprise agreements during enterprise bargaining, and the potential for forced multi-employer bargaining and sector-wide industrial action campaigns. Rohan and Nat explore the practical impact these potential reforms might have on Australian workplaces and the issues to consider during the post-Summit consultation phase.

The Third Wheel Podcast Series: ESG in Australia Episode 20 – Board accountability and reporting on workplace misconduct

By Nerida Jessup, Anna Creegan and Lucy Boyd

In this episode, our Employment, Industrial Relations and Safety team take the wheel again, with Nerida Jessup hosting special guests Anna Creegan and Lucy Boyd. Nerida, Anna and Lucy have a conversation around how organisations are responding to the increased community and shareholder expectations on transparency around sexual harassment and other workplace conduct issues. Together they look at the key drivers of this change including how the increased focus of safety regulators on sexual harassment has changed approaches to reporting, as well as the scrutiny around the use of non-disclosure agreements.
