The Recruiters’ Casebook and WorkAccord are getting together to present two free webinars as they test their new webinar platform.
We’d love you to join us and give us your feedback.
Competition & Consumer Law Brief – The New Playing Field.
Friday, 21 September 2018, 10.00 am to 10.30 am AEST.
As job-based employment seemingly evolves toward job-based entrepreneurship in the freelance, contracting and gig economies, it’s becoming increasingly important for recruitment, contracting and staffing businesses to keep up to date with competition & consumer law developments that impact their sector and their incorporated workers.
In this free session, Andrew C. Wood will present a short briefing to business owners & managers, consultants and contractors about the role of the ACCC in creating and supporting a fair and level playing field.
Andrew will cover the following topics:
- Authorisations and protective notifications
- Banning orders, penalties & remedies
- Cartel prohibitions
- Collective bargaining and the proposed small business class exemption
- Misleading job ads
- Statutory guarantees and unlawful attempts at exclusion
- Unconscionable conduct
- Unfair standard form, small business contracts
- Unsolicited services (and claims for payment).
Transaction to Transformation
Friday, 28 September 2018, 10.00 am to 10.30 am AEST.
The “factory model” of services production and supply, based on efficiency in repeating similar transactions has been disrupted by Artificial Intelligence. Astute suppliers in the recruitment, contracting & staffing industry are already talking about a major shift from transaction to transformation.
But what does that look like? How is it managed? How is progress measured? How is it supported by business models and the terms and conditions that underpin them? And is the transaction still important?
In this free introductory level webinar that has been designed for recruitment, contracting & staffing agency business owners and managers, we will begin to explore some of these questions and set a pathway for future discussion.
Please send a shout out to your friends and colleagues. We look forward to seeing you there!
