    NAVIGATING EMPLOYMENT ISSUES IN AN ECONOMIC DOWNTURN

    DLA Piper, together with the Japanese Chamber of Commerce & Industry Melbourne (JCCIM) and Australia-Japan Society Victoria (AJSV), invite you to join us for an informative seminar that explores common employment issues experienced by organisiations in an economic downturn.

    Whilst "redundancy" is a word that is regularly heard in Australia when there is a need to downsize an organisation, it is often translated into Japanese as "adjustment dismissal". It is important to understand however that this is quite different to the Japanese concept of an adjustment dismissal.  

    If a redundancy is carried out correctly, it is a low-risk form of employment termination. Failure by an organisation to follow the correct process however can often result in claims and lawsuits.

    This seminar will look at the concept of "redundancy", Australia's legal requirements and processes, and the various methods of risk management available to organisations.

    We hope you can join us.
