Don’t be the next organisation to lose your reputation over poor contingent workforce compliance practices

Today’s workforce is constantly changing and the rise of contingent workers calls for a new approach to managing risk.
Following CXC’s overwhelmingly popular Emerging Workforce Summit, we have brought back the risk and compliance panel to answer your burning questions around worker engagement and legislative change, and provide insights into managing risk in the future of work. 

With big name speakers, including Natalie James, the former Fair Work Ombudsman, Nick Duggal, Partner of Moray & Agnew and Charles Cameron, the Chief Executive of RCSA, we will provide actionable insights for attendees to apply to their contingent workforces.


  • practical guidelines for how you can understand current contingent workforce legislation and protect your organisation from risk
  • an update on legislative changes following the Federal election result
  • definitions and suggestions on how to apply laws around casual conversion, labour hire licensing and supply chain risk
  • case studies and examples of how organisations have historically encountered compliance failings
  • an interactive panel discussion where audience members can ask questions around their own contingent workforce.


In today’s confusing and evolving contingent workforce landscape, organisations must make an active decision to seek out information on how they can be compliant, define workplace relationships, and how current legislation applies to them.

Contingent workforce legislation does not just deal with the exploitation of lower-paid workers. You need to understand and implement changes to comply with Australian workplace laws for every contractor in your organisation, from blue to white collar.

With so much contradictory information out there on how to protect your brand from compliance failings, this panel of risk specialists will cut through the misinformation and provide you with their expert insights.

This is the must-attend event if you are concerned about casual conversion, your contract set up, and how risk carries down the entire supply chain.
