Heading home …

I am heading back to my old home, my old firm, Bradbrook Lawyers. I am going to move from a highly resourced, successful legal practice where I am wonderfully supported, to running my own firm, wearing 27 different hats throughout the course of the day from Employment Law supremo, to cash-flow manager, to HR manager, to doing the dishes and taking the rubbish out as any Principal of a small business does. Why? Well, because I am Jodie Bradbrook, that’s why! Some say I’m half a genius, 3 parts mad, and go in 5 directions at once on a noisy jet ski… And, I wouldn’t have it any other way. To quote Frank Sinatra: “I did it my way”. And that’s what I have learned during my time here at DW Fox Tucker who, bless its cotton socks, couldn’t have made me feel any more welcome. So, it’s time to go home… To hang up my shingle again as Jodie Bradbrook, from Bradbrook Lawyers, and to fight hard for my clients, because that’s what I do, and that’s who I am.

Registration: 8.00am Start 8.15am Finish 9.45am
Venue: The Science Exchange The Thinking Space

Conducting a workplace investigation or even getting the ball rolling can be a daunting task for business owners and their staff, particularly when doing it for the first time. This seminar is intended to provide you with the basics so that you have the confidence to gather the information and then brief your lawyer in a way that is cost effective and ensures that you can act quickly. Acting quickly is important not just because it ensures you afford all concerned with procedural fairness, but also to minimise the cost to your business, if staff must be suspended and paid while the investigation is on foot.

Federal Court Converts Casuals to Permanent

On 16 August 2018 the Full Court of the Federal Court handed down a decision which is likely to impact the employment of casual employees in the future.  The decision sets out the basis upon which an employee is able to argue that the true nature of their employment is permanent and not casual – despite the way in which they have been engaged or paid.  As a result of this decision Employers should review current arrangements with casual employees to determine whether any fall within the category of workers that should be converted to casual.  Any one requiring assistance with this task should contact us for further information.  The decision can be found at [2018] – FCAFC 131
