Law School seminar draws appreciative audience for seminar on key High Court decision

The Adelaide Law School has held a well received seminar on the High Court’s recent decision in Commonwealth Bank v Barker, which concerned the scope of an employer’s obligation to act in a fair, reasonable or co-operative way towards its employees.

The seminar, organised by the School’s Work and Employment Regulation research group in conjunction with the Australian Labour Law Association, drew over 50 practitioners, academics, students and public officials. They heard presentations by research higher degree candidate Gabrielle Golding, research group co-director Prof Andrew Stewart and newly appointed Crown Advocate Dr Chris Bleby SC (pictured), who analysed the decision and its practical implications.

The next seminar of this type will be held on Friday 24 October and will involve a discussion by Dr Joanna Howe and Assoc Prof Alex Reilly of a recent review of the system for bringing skilled workers into Australia on temporary ‘457’ visas.
