  • The process for effective management of the performance of an employee to achieve engagement and required performance outcomes, as well as what to do if performance management is unsuccessful.
  • The recent legislative changes surrounding employer obligations to convert casual employment to permanent employment – what are they, when does it apply.
  • The recent amendments to the list of professionals within the Health Professionals and Support Services Award 2020 – how does this affect dental practices.
