From Casuals to Contractors: Getting the Right Workforce Mix in Your Vet Practice

A webinar series brought to you by Independent Vets of Australia

About this event

Join us for “From Casuals to Contractors: Getting the Right Workforce Mix in Your Vet Practice”

New amendments to the Fair Work Act 2009 came into place on the 27th of March 2021 which makes it a legal requirement that employers offer eligible casual employees the option to convert to permanent employment (i.e. full time and part time).

This webinar will provide veterinary practice employers with the information and tools necessary to deal with this new obligation. The session will also explore the risks of using contractors, whilst providing guidance on how to best protect your veterinary practice’s interests when engaging people on this basis. Participants will benefit through a stronger understanding of the pros and cons of creating flexible working relationships within their practices.
