What could happen if you ignore the Vulnerable Workers Bill?


What changes will Franchisors have to make under the impending Vulnerable Workers Bill?


The Vulnerable Workers Bill has arisen due to serious misconduct from a number of large companies; household names that we all know: 7-Eleven, Caltex, Subway. The list goes on. Most of those are appear to be strategic, deliberate conduct to save money on labour, which always ranks in the top overheads of business.

This has caused the Federal government to come forward with the game-changing Bill, making Franchisors liable for franchisee misconduct when it comes to managing their employment relations at a grassroots, franchisee level.


This exclusive breakfast briefing event will help to answer the main questions that may impact your business as a result of the passing of the Vulnerable Workers Bill:



  • What does this change mean?

  • How does this impact my franchise and the franchisees?

  • When do I have to make changes?

  • What do I need to do/what are my options?
