9.45am TOPIC 1: Employment Law – Your rights at work: who looks after them – Is it the employer, the union, or the Fair Work Commission?
All employees, even casuals, have certain rights afforded to them under the law. Conduct such as discrimination, bullying, and unfair dismissals is not tolerated in the workplace. This seminar addresses some of these protections and how to assert your rights when you feel you are being treated unfairly in the workplace.

10.45am TOPIC 2: Personal Injury – what are the rights of an injured person and how to manage the situation?
There are many forms of ‘injury’ which can happen to an individual. Most of these are treated differently under the law, including what form of compensation you can receive and how to go about proving you were injured. This seminar should be seen by everyone in the community.
