General protections claims under Part 3-1 of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth): common issues and recent authority

This year, the general protections provisions under Part 3-1 of the Fair Work Act 2008 (Cth) have been judicially considered by the Full Court of the Federal Court of Australia in several notable decisions, in which previously divergent authorities have been resolved as well  as established principle applied.

In this virtual seminar barrister, Penny Thew will examine the impact of these recent decisions on general protections claims commonly made and the parameters of jurisdiction. 

Penny was called to the Bar in 2005 and regularly advises and appears in federal and most state courts and tribunals for corporate, government and individual clients primarily in employment, discrimination and commercial matters.

While Penny's particular expertise includes all matters arising under the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) and the Industrial Relations Act 1996 (NSW), as well as claims involving discrimination law, contractual disputes and restraints of trade, she also appears regularly in litigation involving succession law, disposition of assets and possession. Penny is in addition appointed a part time Tribunal Member to the Consumer and Commercial Division of the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (reappointed for a five year term in 2019).
