Event Details

It remains true that the “employer company” usually faces the main exposure for employment related claims. However, some recent developments have seen Directors and Managers facing personal exposure when things go wrong.

This seminar will explain the circumstances where a directors or manager can be held personally liable for decisions and actions.

We will cover:

  • Civil penalties for underpayment of wages;
  • Exposure for “sham contracting”
  • Personal obligation for underpayment of superannuation or tax – particularly in insolvency situations;
  • Obligations under safety legislation
  • Being an accessory to discrimination or harassment claims

  • Company Directors and Officers
  • Human Resource Directors
