Employment Law in Australia - for UK based businesses


Courtney Gleeson, Principal Lawyer of Sheltons Legal Pty Ltd, Ned Shelton, Managing Partner of Sheltons Group, and colleagues in the Australian office, Michael Clarke, Director, and Patrick McGinty, Associate Director (Tax) (Sheltons Accountants Australia) run through key considerations for employers in relation to their Australian-based employees – with an emphasis on UK-based companies.

They will also touch on some key considerations for overseas employers, specifically in relation to performance management, flexible working arrangements and termination of the employment relationship.
