Event Details


Did you know that you are at risk of having a workplace incident impact your business, executive team and board of directors?
In this forum we focus on how to protect your business from the financial penalties, legal costs and reputational damage that can follow a workplace incident, not to mention the drain this can be on your time and resources, whether you are a board member, an executive, or a senior manager. 
As you know, both your business and you personally are exposed to liability.  Eliminating unlawful behaviour from your workplace, and ensuring that you are protected in the worst case scenario, are critical.

Our expert speakers will provide personal insight into  compliance obligations and the challenges of balancing risk against cost.  We’ll also review the figures on workplace compliance spending and preview our new Law at Work compliance solution, built on extensive client Compliance Focus Group consultation.  

Join us for this informative session, designed to provide Chief Executive Officers, HR Directors and the broader executive with valuable insights to support their role.
