About the event

This seminar is also available as a webinar. 

The Legal Services Award 2010 applies to most incorporated law firms in Western Australia that employ legal, clerical and administrative employees, law graduates, and law clerks.

Since January 2014, the Fair Work Commission has been conducting a 4-yearly review of the Award. This is now close to completion, with changes expected. These changes include a new annualised salary provision, described by submitting law firms as a “fundamental shift in how remuneration for professional staff must be managed” which will commence on 1 March 2020, as well as other changes expected to come into operation in November 2019.

This seminar will:

  • Discuss key changes to the Award
  • provide practical advice for member law firms about how to implement the changes in their practices.  A law firm that fails to comply with the terms of the Award exposes itself to financial and reputational risk.
  • discuss the potential consequences that flow from a contravention of the revised Award.
