AT a number of AMMA’s Industry Briefings kicking off next week, members will hear our workplace experts highlight significant lessons and implications from recent Fair Work Commission and court decisions.

Recent decisions to be explored cover:

Ordinary and customary turnover of labour

In upholding an appeal of a food and accommodation service provider, a FWC full bench has overturned a Commissioner’s reinterpretation of ‘ordinary and customary turnover of labour’ in a dispute over redundancy pay.


A FWC decision on an application for an order to stop bullying raised questions including whether alleged conduct of individuals no longer in the workplace is relevant to a bullying claim. Discover what this means for your anti-bullying policy and procedure.

Unfair dismissal

In an example of the risks employers can face during business restructuring, the FWC has ruled that a transport company employee was unfairly dismissed when made redundant. Hear what this means for your redundancy and deployment obligations, and the steps you can take to protect your organisation from unfair dismissal claims.

Workers’ compensation for after hours altercation

The Federal Court has allowed a FIFO employee to claim workers’ compensation for injuries caused by a co-worker outside of working hours at a pub. Find out the implications this decision has for FIFO working arrangements and employers’ liability for after-hours conduct.
