Geelong HR Masterclass | Mental Injury - Your Rights


Martin Reid from Coulter Roache will present on the aspect around Mental Injury – Your Rights.

Martin will be discussing how managing ill or injured employees is one of the most challenging areas of employee relations including:

 - confidential and emotionally sensitive discussions dealing with sometimes intimate health issues relating to fitness for work;
- the intersection of various areas of law including occupational health and safety, workers compensation, discrimination and

- the Fair Work Act 2009; and
balancing cost factors and business imperatives against employee wellbeing.

Martin will also discuss specific issues of concern for employers including:

- What is the cause of injury? 
- Is the employee actually fit for work?
- What reasonable adjustments could or should be made?
- What next?
- Can they terminate an employee when they have informed me of their mental illness or injury?
- What are the risks to their business?
