Earlier this year, the Fair Work Commission ruled that Westpac Bank's dismissal of a veteran senior manager for sexual harassment was fair despite the incident occurring out of hours and the sacked employee having a 35 year untarnished record.

Join Matthew Smith, Head of Employment, Safety & Regulatory, as he looks at the Commission's decision which demonstrates the higher standard that is now expected of employees over their social and physical interactions.

Do your organisation's relevant policies meet the zero-tolerance approach which is now expected by the community and endorsed by the Commission? And are you able to determine whether out of hours conduct has a sufficient connection to an employee's employment?

You are welcome to submit questions for consideration before the webinar by emailing us here. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions during the live webinar via the chat box function.

We hope you will join us for this webinar which impacts all employers.
