Workplace Relations & Safety Bulletin - December 2017

Workplace Relations - 14 December 2017

Welcome to the December 2017 edition of the Workplace Relations & Safety Bulletin.

This edition discusses several recent legal developments and helpful tips for employers including:

  • how employers must take care when seeking to unilaterally impose changes on employees;
  • a caution for employers from the Fair Work Commission on clarity of OH&S policies; and
  • how a Full Bench decision has paved the way for unions to notify the Commission of a dispute in their own right.


We hope that you enjoy this edition of the Bulletin. As always, we appreciate your feedback. If you have comments, queries, or suggestions for topics that you would like us to cover in future editions, please do get in touch.

Wishing you, your family and friends a wonderful festive season, and a healthy and prosperous 2018.
