On January 1 this year, new national anti-bullying laws came into force across Australia which potentially create new challenges for all not-for-profit organisations.

Do you understand the legislation? Has your organisation implemented policies to respond? Seeking advice from business lawyers at can help you avoid legal problems.

Not-For-Profit People is delighted to present two new networking breakfasts in Sydney (Thursday 15 May) and Brisbane (Wed 14 May) to explore the new anti-bullying laws and the implications for NFP’s.
