HR Business Breakfast - By Invitation Only

Event Topic: Sleeping On The Job ... Personal Relationships In The Workplace
Event Type: HR Breakfast
Event Date: Thursday, 12 April, 2018
Event Time: 7:15am - 9:00am
Event Venue: The Lakes Golf Club, Eastlakes
Presenter: Stephen Booth, Coleman Greig Lawyers

In the wake of the Barnaby Joyce scandal, the Amber Harrison/Channel 7 case, the AFL senior male/junior female relationships case, Harvey Weinstein, and #metoo, sensitivity to the issues arising from sexual or other interpersonal relationships between staff, and their ramifications in workplaces, is extreme.

Most organisations will have sexual harassment policies and the like in place.  But in light of the current focus on these issues, what should you do to avoid issues arising?

Join us at our first HR Business Breakfast for 2018 when employment law expert Stephen Booth will address issues such as:

    • dealing with grievances, complaints, scuttlebutt

    • what is personal and private, and what isn’t?

    • morality and values

    • public relationships v secret relationships

    • relationships between superiors and subordinates

    • timeliness, transparency, fairness and handling the PR

Stephen will look more closely at some of the cases that have attracted media and legal attention, and also some situations arising which cast light on how to handle, and how not to handle, these issues.

I hope you can join us for this thought-provoking event!
