Event description

Description

The Adelaide Law School’s Work and Employment Regulation research group and the SA Chapter of the Australian Labour Law Association invite you to a seminar, presented by Professor Anthony Forsyth.

In 2015, Anthony was selected to chair the Victorian Government's inquiry into the labour hire industry. The Victorian Government has accepted a majority of the 35 recommendations contained in the final report following the inquiry – including the recommendation that a licensing scheme be established to regulate labour hire operators. Legislation to establish such a scheme has since been enacted in both Queensland and South Australia. In this seminar, Anthony will discuss the key findings of the Victorian Inquiry, the Victorian Government’s response, and the legislation passed in Queensland and South Australia.

Anthony Forsyth is a Professor with the Graduate School of Business and Law at RMIT University where he lectures in employment law and a consultant with Corrs Chambers Westgarth where he oversees the firm's thought leadership in workplace relations and work health and safety. Anthony has been published extensively and he is recognised as a leading academic in the fields of workplace dispute resolution and dispute prevention, collective bargaining, union recognition, and good faith bargaining. Anthony is also a co-author of the 6th edition of Creighton and Stewart's Labour Law.
