    Free Speech and Whistle Blowers: An Update

    Today’s episode revisits the issue of free speech in the workplace. This follows the recent outcome of the Michaela Banerji case in the High Court, which has made plenty of people question whether they can say what they want without losing their jobs, and under what circumstances they might.
    The internet age now offers people around the world the opportunity to express their views on issues affecting the world around them at any time. What happens if those views are at odds with their employer?
    Kieran Pender, journalist and visiting fellow at the ANU College of Law, joins us to discuss the path of this case into the High Court, the legal principles surrounding it and whether we are any closer to understanding the implications of its ruling on future cases.

    Non Disclosure Agreements with John Wilson and Judith Bessant

    In this episode, we're discussing non-disclosure agreements, which are now very common when employment ends in contentious circumstances for a variety of reasons but are they fair, and reasonable. Do they prevent us from having discussions about workplace issues that might, in fact, be in everyone's interest, and under what circumstances should you sign one.
    Our host, Genevieve Jacobs is joined by Bradley Allen Love lawyer, John Wilson and Professor Judith Bessant from the RMIT School of Global Urban and Social Studies. Judith made a submission to the national inquiry into sexual harassment in Australian workplaces, by the Australian Human Rights Commission on this topic.

    Today on the HR Breakfast Club podcast, our guest host James Judge sits down with Gus McLachlan to talk about leadership in the digital age. Gus has recently transitioned from the role as Major General in the Australian Army after 38 years of service.
    Gus has commanded at all levels including commanding the first brigade and has completed several overseas deployments to Afghanistan, East Timor, and the Solomon Islands. He's also been seconded to the Pentagon and has filled the role of Chief of Staff to the then Chief of the Australian Defense Force, sir Angus Houston.
    His last role was as head of Forces Command managing 35,000 women and men across a couple of functional areas including the individual training of skills as diverse as tank drivers to carpenters, helicopter pilots, and cyber defenders.
    With such a diverse scope of leadership responsibilities throughout his career, we are very pleased to be discussing the ways in which leadership has changed over the years. Gus was generous with his time and provided invaluable insight into how to create a positive, supportive work culture.
