    Learn about changes to contractor laws and what the implications are for drafting of contracting agreements.

    This year the High Court has handed two decisions about independent contracting relationships; finding contractual terms are the main focus when assessing contracting relationships. This means businesses have been afforded the opportunity for greater clarity and greater peace of mind when engaging contractors to rely on well drafted contractual arrangements with less risk of claims for employee entitlements. Key takeaways:

    1. What the changes mean for you and your business.
    2. Why terms of a well-drafted written contract are essential.
    3. How CCIQ can support your business to manage your contractors now and in the future.
    4. Access a contract template to use in your business.

    TFN Live Brisbane, Thursday 26 May 2022

    We’re excited to announce TFN Live Brisbane will take place on Thursday 26 May, generously hosted by Clayton Utz. We’d love to hear from grassroots non-profits and social enterprises that are running innovative programs to support Queenslanders experiencing disadvantage. 

    Three finalists – as chosen by an independent selection panel – will receive professional coaching and the chance to connect with an audience of 100+ guests at an exciting virtual live crowdfunding event to raise an estimated $20,000 each.

    A big thank you to the Morgans Foundation, who will generously provide matched funding on the night. This event is also supported by Deloitte and the Queensland Community Foundation.

    Applications are now closed and our 3 finalists will be announced shortly!
