Covid and Employment Law

Sarah Gee

If we never heard the word “Covid” again, I’m sure we would all be very happy. However, it continues to impact everything we do, and most significantly in the employment space. Current issues include: 

  • 40% of Australian workers are planning to actively look for a new job in 2022 (ELMO Employee Sentiment Index) 
  • While government directives are being stripped back, this places more pressure on employers to set their own rules and policies 
  • Around half of the decisions published by Fair Work each week feature Covid related issues including return to the office directives, discrimination and vaccination 

Now is an important time to review your policies and practices and get on the front foot
