Thank you for a successful Walking the Talk 2015 employment and industrial relations conference

Many of our readers recently attended our annual employment and industrial relations conference: Walking the Talk. We again extend our thanks to those attendees. Many attendees have already completed our feedback survey, which, in our experience, greatly assists in the continuing evolution of Walking the Talk.

Norman Waterhouse owes the ongoing success of Walking the Talk to your input. Importantly, we always take on board suggestions for pertinent topics, as it is these suggestions which form the basis for each year’s program.

Whether or not you were able to join us at this year’s conference, we encourage you to get in contact with any of our practitioners by phone, email or in person, and let us know what topics you would like to hear about at Walking the Talk 2016.

We look forward to seeing you next year.

Sathish Dasan, Partner, Employment & Industrial Relations Team

Whilst in the past Courts have recognised that the duty of care owed by a principal to a contractor is not as stringent as that owed to an employee, there is nevertheless an obligation for a principal to take precautions against serious harm to those that they contract to perform work.
