Not just work: Ending the exploitation of refugee and migrant workers
Thu. 8 December 2016, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm AEDT
This event is presented as part of the Researchers for Asylum Seekers and Melbourne Social Equity Institute Seminar Series
The WEstjustice Employment Law Project seeks to improve employment outcomes for newly arrived and refugee communities in Melbourne’s Western suburbs. Building on a period of research and consultation, the Project has delivered two pilot programs over the past two years: an employment law service (providing legal advice, referral and representation) and a community legal education program (for community members, community workers and a train the trainer program for community leaders).
Key findings from the Project were documented in a recent report, Not Just Work. Catherine Hemingway is Senior Employment Project Solicitor at WEstjustice Community Legal Centre, a Melbourne Social Equity Institute Community Fellow and author of the report. Come along to hear Catherine talk about the Project and report’s key findings and recommendations.
The talk will run for approx one hour and will be followed by end of year drinks. All welcome.
