Employment Contracts – Why Are They Necessary?

Employment contracts can be written, oral or a mixture of both. Written employment contracts are always preferable to oral agreements which are difficult to enforce, especially when disputes arise.

Without employment contracts, businesses expose themselves to unnecessary and avoidable risk.

How The Banks Discriminate Against the Adult Industry

At the height of Victorian-era morality in Australia, it became illegal to swim at the local beach during daylight hours. As the flow of convicts from the UK slowed and Australia started to develop its own identity, free from the ‘taint’ of a convict past, the authorities thought that adopting this extreme measure would send a message to the world, that we were now a civilised and moral country who would not tolerate the morally ‘iffy’ business of swimming at a public beach when others could see you.

In September Clare Watson’s sold out theatre piece Gonzo brought together two demographics whose voices are underrepresented in pornography debates: teenage boys and porn performers. The Malthouse play, featuring four teens in conversation with queer kink performer Gala Vanting and sex documentarian Helen Betty Corday (aka Liandra Dahl), posits teens as savvy media-literate porn consumers and reveals the potential in engaging with performers to make sense of online pornography.
