WALGA Training has added to its suite of blended learning opportunities, a range of interactive and sector relevant webinars specifically developed for the Local Government sector.

Not only do webinars allow you to hear from sector experts on topical issues affecting your Local Government, but they also allow you to interact with your colleagues from around the State without spending time and money travelling to a specific location.

Webinars will be announced throughout the year in response to the dynamic Local Government landscape, so make sure you regularly check this page to see the latest we have on offer. Alternatively you can subscribe to our monthly Training eNews publication and have webinar notifications delivered direct to your email address.

Differences between Federal and State Minimum Employment Standards (Employee Relations) 

Tuesday, 16 November 2021
11:00am - 11:45am

There is a possibility that WA Local Governments may be required to transition to the State industrial relations system. If this occurs, Local Governments currently operating in the Federal IR System will be required to comply with the  Industrial Relations Act 1979 (WA) and the Minimum Conditions of Employment Act 1993 (WA) (MCE Act). 

This webinar is the first in an upcoming series of webinars that we will be providing regarding the potential State IR system transition. This webinar is provided to assist in understanding the differences between the Federal and State minimum employment statutory entitlements. This webinar will focus on the key differences between the National Employment Standards (NES) and the MCE Act.

Please note that the content of this webinar is similar to the presentation delivered during the WALGA HR Forums held in June and July 2021 and is for WALGA ER subscribers only. 

A recording of this webinar and a copy of a fact sheet on the differences between the NES and MCE Act will be made available following the event.

Presenter: Natalie Abend

Panellists: Davina Hunter and Sam Lyon 

Note: this Webinar is for ER subscribers only.
