Implications arising from employers’ Voice positions

By Robyn Tongol | |3 minute read

The Indigenous Voice to Parliament has gained considerable attention in recent months, with a referendum on track for later this year.


In this episode, we share a conversation with one of our sister brands, Lawyers Weekly, on what businesses should know about the Voice and their obligations as employers.

In this episode, Swaab partner Michael Byrnes takes listeners through various employment and workplace relations scenarios that will have to be considered with regard to the Voice and how employees can reasonably express their views if they are in conflict with their employer’s position.

Mr Byrnes also reveals the dangers of overstepping in publicly contradicting one’s employer and the steps both sides may need to take to ensure freedom of expression is balanced against corporate interests.
