QUARTERLY LEGAL UPDATE: How is the changing law impacting procurement practices in Australia? (VIRTUAL)

What is happening in the law and how is it affecting procurement practices – in a real-time way? 

Join Scott Alden and his team for this 60-90 minute session every three months – which will be half webinar and half Q&A, and find out THREE key things:

  • What new laws are coming into effect right now that might affect how procurement operate with suppliers

Including :

The new Forced Labour Bill – 23rd August introduction 

The NSW Modern Slavery Amendments Bill – 14th October 

Unfair Contract Terms Act changes – coming soon 

  • What recent CASE LAW decisions might impact directly and indirectly upon procurement practices, or have implications for how we work with suppliers?
  • How are we implementing new solutions to recent laws that have come into effect, including regular updates on progress with:

Payment Times Reporting Act 2020 – new implementation guidance 

Fed Govt Covid variations 2021-22 UPDATES     

Modern Slavery Act 2018

Chain of Responsibility laws updates – nationally not just in NSW 

Privacy Laws and regulations 

Lock out law changes in NSW
