Cilla will delve into the next round of industrial relations reforms which are set to bring in game-changing “same job, same pay” principles for labour hire workers and the criminalisation of wage theft. She will also cover the gender pay gap, fixed-term contracts and the workplace challenges of breakthrough technologies like ChatGPT for HR and legal teams are also on the agenda this year and should not be missed. As a gripping finale, she will dissect a recent case study where the High Court was tasked with deciding whether a business should be liable for the unsavoury actions of a drunken employee – perhaps our most shocking tale yet!
