Employment contracts are insurance policies
As a workplace relations leader, and fan of The Barefoot Investor, Carly Stebbing argues it is critical that lawyers think of their job as their most important financial asset and their contract as an insurance policy.
Returning to The Lawyers Weekly Show, Resolution123 founder and principal Carly Stebbing joins host Jerome Doraisamy to discuss the need for lawyers to rethink the importance of their assets and better prioritise the terms and conditions of their employment, particularly given marketplace shifts in the wake of COVID-19.
The pair also discuss practical considerations for lawyers in ensuring their contracts are not only accommodating but also that there are no red flags for unexpected circumstances such as the need to work from home, or being faced with a pay cut, in the wake of a global pandemic.
