The line between private life and professional life has become increasingly blurred, particularly as remote working sees a further step away from the collegiate atmosphere of the organisation. How far can an employee express him or herself without breaching their employment obligations? This session will examine the way formerly “private” behaviour and opinion is being increasingly viewed through the employment lens and what the rights of the employer are, including:

  • Where does private life end and professional life begin? How far can an employer seek to regulate an employee’s private life?
  • Is there a right to free speech and freedom of expression? The lessons of Comcare v Banerji [2019] HCA 23 and James Cook University v Ridd [2020] FCAFC 123 and the appeal to the High Court
  • Can and should the employment contract regulate what an employee does outside of work?
  • Staff Codes of Conduct and associated policies as a tool for behaviour guidance – are they effective?
  • Restrictions on employees and social media – how far can you go? Practical tips for management and enforcement
  • Consenting relationships in the workplace – what rights and duties does the employer have?
  • Guidance for employers in proactively identifying and managing conflicts of interest and associated issues in personal office relationships

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.

At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
