Elections online panel discussion

The Registered Organisations Commission hosted an online panel discussion about elections on Thursday 17 September. We were pleased to have over 50 people engage with us for the discussion, with representation from unions, employer organisations and advisers.   

Feedback was again very positive. 100% of survey respondents said they would attend another online event hosted by the Registered Organisations Commission.

“ROC webinars are informative and the use of the ROC templates make the task easier. Keep up the fantastic work”.

The panel was made up of subject matter experts from the ROC, who responded to technical questions submitted by attendees, and provided solutions to many of the challenges caused by the pandemic. We also discussed a hypothetical example of a registered organisation to demonstrate how organisations should prepare their prescribed information. 

You can access all of the tools and resources referred to in this panel discussion on the Elections – Tools and Resources webpage.

Information Workshop Questions and Answers

Many questions have been asked at the information sessions and workshops about specific circumstances, particularly in relation to corrupting benefits and disclosure obligations for bargaining representatives. The ROC cannot provide legal advice about how the law applies to individual specific circumstances, however our tools and resources on a range of topics might assist organisations and their branches to identify issues they need to think about.
