The ability of employees to speak freely, both in public and private sector contexts, is increasingly being challenged. Where should the lines be drawn? Is it possible to reconcile employees' speech rights with the interests of employers? Held on 22 July 2020 as part of our 60th anniversary series of events, this webinar considered these issues from practical, theoretical, policy and comparative perspectives.
Our panellists: Josh Bornstein, Maurice Blackburn; Kate Eastman SC, New Chambers; Distinguished Professor Adrienne Stone, The University of Melbourne; and Professor Andrew Podger AO, The Australian National University. Moderator: Kieran Pender, International Bar Association and ANU College of Law.
