Case Study:

Information Session on Working in Australia

An information session on ‘Working in Australia’ is designed to educate the community on their rights at work. The first presentation from 9am-11am focuses on employment law and attracts more than 80 attendees. The second presentation from 11am-1pm focuses on immigration law and visa restrictions and attracts 50 attendees.  

This is counted as two CLE Activities, with the number of attendees at each presentation being recorded as a service characteristic.

Following the information session, a person approaches a Centre lawyer and says they had been sacked last week by a large multi-national company, and didn’t know what to do. The lawyer takes the person’s name and details, provides immediate advice about the time limitations, and advises the person to call the state-wide specialist employment law centre.  This should be recorded as one Legal Advice and one Referral.
