Our community legal education staff visit organisations to provide tailored presentations, information sessions and seminars on a broad range of topics. These include basic employee rights, an overview of employment law in Western Australia for non-lawyers and how employees can get the most out of ELC’s services. We aim to educate the WA community about workplace rights and to promote a better understanding of what can often be a complex area of the law.
