Seminar on hot topics

SUVA-based law firm Munro Leys hosted a seminar on hot topics to inform their clients on areas of enforcement on legislations at Suva’s Grand Pacific Hotel on Tuesday.

The main topics of discussion at the popular annual event included tax, personal property securities Act, accident compensations Act, managing sexual harassment risks and the latest in employment laws.

Speakers during the seminar included Rajnil Krishna, Glenis Yee, Nicholas Barnes, Liliwaimanu Vuiyasawa, John Apted and Richard Naidu.

Mrs Vuiyasawa, a solicitor with Munro Leys, spoke on managing sexual harassment risks — employee’s liabilities.

“What are your liabilities under the employment relations promulgation, an employer including the harasser can be held accountable if they failed to take reasonable steps necessary to prevent sexual harassment of the employee,” Mrs Vuiyasawa said during her presentation.
