At first glance it may seem appropriate for a firm to represent multiple parties involved in a workplace incident, but the reality is that this is fraught with risk. In this month’s Proctor, Stephen Keim SC reveals the risks of multiple representation in work health and safety law matters in the first of two articles.
The June edition also explains the importance of Mabo Day (3 June) and its connection to the Native Title Act 1993, and reports on a landmark decision under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (NSW) which left a quarry operator with a reckless attitude to safety facing a fine of $900K. This month CEO Rolf Moses interviews Robert Reed OAM about his significant pro bono achievements and the June wine column invites us to explore some interesting alternatives to the usual winter reds.
There’s all this and much more in the June edition of Proctor, available now.
