• 21 February 2020 • 1 min read

The Employment & Workplace team has summarised the most important employment, safety and industrial relations law cases of 2019 and the implications stemming from those cases for 2020 and beyond.

2019 has brought with it a wide variety of significant cases in the employment, safety and industrial relations landscape. These ranged from the very public Israel Folau and George Calombaris cases, to the introduction of the new whistleblower regime, and the Fair Work Commission’s (FWC) continued attempts to grapple with the effects of the gig economy.

2019 In Review provides an overview of the major issues from the year and then examines cases in the following areas:

  • general employment law
  • employment law and the Fair Work Commission
  • workplace health and safety
  • industrial relations
  • what to watch in 2020.
