Do you want to know more about your rights at work in the time of COVID-19?
In this first of our ‘COVID-19’ special episodes, we talk to Alex Yiannikas from Employment Law team about the rights for casual and permanent employees in these unprecedented times.
The podcast audio is taken from a live webinar we recorded on 18 March 2020 and answers questions from our Community Worker audience.
As the situation evolves, we will be talking to our employment lawyers again to keep you updated, so subscribe to Law for Community Workers on the go to stay informed.
