Webinar: Redundancy and reasonable management action: what you need to know

Employers considering making a worker redundant are usually aware that their actions might come under scrutiny in an unfair dismissal claim. What many employers don’t consider is that the reasonableness of the redundancy and the way in which it is undertaken may also come up for consideration by the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission should the worker make an application for compensation for psychiatric injury arising out of the redundancy, and the question of reasonableness in this forum is not so black and white.

Our guest presenters, Anna Hendry and Adele Garrett of HopgoodGanim will explain what reasonable management action may look like and provide attendees examples from recent cases.

The session will be recorded if you're unable to attend the live webinar and uploaded to our YouTube channel.
