Featuring Sarina Gibbon, APIA

Do you know that retaliatory termination is the one unlawful act that does not require the Tribunal to consider your intent before awarding penalties? That’s right, you don’t have to mean to do wrong; you just have to have done wrong to be fined.

Join us for this essential webinar to learn how to navigate retaliatory termination rules with clarity and confidence.

This webinar will include a micro-session on RTA changes update in light of the government’s announcement on 11 April regarding the restoration of the 90-day no-fault termination and other tenancy changes by the end of 2024.
