Who pays the penalty for breaches of the WHS Act?
In this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, brought to you by Holman Webb, host Jerome Doraisamy is joined by workplace partner Alicia Mataere and insurance partner Lucy Rooney to discuss recent changes to the Work, Health and Safety Act and what those changes mean both for corporates and individuals.
The trio delve into the recent removal of certain safety nets, the placing of greater responsibility on the shoulders of those in management, and the steps employers will have to take to better safeguard themselves and their organisations, including comprehensive reviews of contracts and insurance policies.
Moreover, the trio discuss the role of insurers moving forward, to what extent the age of coronavirus might influence how best corporates and individuals respond, and how best lawyers can be advising clients to ensure their policies and procedures are covering all bases moving forward.
