Queensland’s new Industrial Relations Act 2016 expands the jurisdiction of the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission to include workplace-related discrimination and bullying matters. This month’s Proctor provides a rundown on this and other changes under the new legislation. The May edition also offers an early career lawyers’ guide to practising in the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal, emphasising key differences from usual court practices, while QLS president Christine Smyth describes the proposal to regulate lawyers under the AML/CTF regime as a fundamental attack on clients’ civil rights and explains why this is a dire threat to the solicitor-client relationship. Along with its many regular features, this month’s Proctor offers plenty of informative reading for legal professionals. Check it out now online.
Proctor is now available to be read on your smart-phone or tablet, with iOS and Android apps now available for Queensland Law Society members. Android and Apple users can now download the app from their respective online stores below.
