Professional advisers are at risk of a significant financial penalty for their clients’ employment decisions, warns Belinda Winter, workplace relations and safety partner at Brisbane law firm Cooper Grace Ward.
‘Employment law has always been a minefield for all business, but now this minefield is catching advisers,’ Ms Winter said.
Ms Winter will discuss these issues and more at Cooper Grace Ward’s upcoming Adviser Training Day on Friday 24 March. Now in its eighth year, the Adviser Training Day is an intensive full-day conference hosted at the Mercure Hotel Brisbane, covering a range of topics designed to assist professional advisers in the issues they face on a day-to-day basis.
It will be accompanied by the Annual SMSF Conference on Thursday 23 March, which includes an SMSF Back to Basics session, update on the previous year in the SMSF space followed by an exclusive workshop addressing SMSF and estate planning issues after the 2016 Budget.
Both the Adviser Training Day and the Annual SMSF Conference will feature presentations from lawyers specialising in tax, revenue, superannuation, estate planning, workplace relations and other areas of commercial law.
