BIG TALK with the Fair Work Ombudsman, Sandra Parker PSM
BIG TALK provides an invaluable opportunity for RCSA Members to engage in small talk on big issues with key external stakeholders and decision makers.
Following a brief address from the Fair Work Ombudsman, Charles Cameron will facilitate a Q&A session between members and Sandra Parker PSM.
RCSA is keen to ensure that BIG TALK is a member-led engagement series, so we ask that you consider any questions you have for the Fair Work Ombudsman and share them with us in advance of the event.
You can submit your questions here.
We will call on members during the session to ask their question of Sandra directly.
If you have a question but do not wish to ask it yourself, please let us know when you submit and Charles can ask it on your behalf.
Session Date & Time: Tuesday, 27 April 2021, 3pm - 4pm AEST
Please note: BIG TALK may not always be recorded due to the sensitive nature of the conversation and privacy of our guest speakers. We therefore encourage members to register and attend in real-time to ensure you don't miss out on this great session!
