About the Forum

LAWASIA is pleased to invite the participation of members and legal professionals at the LAWASIA Employment Law Forum 2019, to be held in Denarau, Fiji from Friday 25 to Saturday 26 January 2019.

This 1 ½ day forum will offer a topical, practical and intensive program, providing lawyers in the region, particularly in Fiji and the South Pacific, a unique opportunity to expand their knowledge of employment law.

Hosted at the Sofitel Fiji Resort & Spa, and with a theme of “Balancing Employment Law Rights & Obligations”, the forum will examine a range of topical national and cross-border issues of relevance to legal practitioners now and into the future.  A line-up of speakers from the host jurisdiction of Fiji and the Asia Pacific will share information and expertise on subjects including:

  • Migrant labour issues: the rights of migrant workers and the obligations of employers;
  • Disciplinary investigations: the need to be both effective and fair;
  • Social media, privacy and employment: balancing rights where business information is involved; and
  • Model clauses for employment agreements: exploring uniformity of employment terms in national and transnational employment.

LAWASIA events are renowned for a collegial atmosphere, networking opportunities and the exchange of knowledge in a regional context that sees regular delegates return year after year.

With the support of the Fiji Law Society, LAWASIA is pleased to welcome all to an exciting and informative event in Denarau.
