Jonathan focuses on being practical and providing value for clients through education and training. With a unique trade union background, he has the ability to provide practical guidance for clients and gives context to managing risk and uncertainty around people management.


The Covid-19 pandemic has led to an array of legal issues which have put major organisations in difficult situations in the Fair Work Commission. Some of which could have been avoided. As JobKeeper has ended and restrictions start being lifted, even more, the remnants of workplace changes mean there are now more legal risks for employers.

This session will explore top HR challenges facing businesses:
• Redundancies
• General Protections
• Working From Home (and the return to office)
• Legal Directions
• Unfair Dismissal 

Jonathan Mamaril is the Principal and Director with NB Lawyers – lawyers for employers. Jonathan comes from a unique background working for a trade union and brings his experience leading hand-picked expert lawyers in the areas of Employment Law and Commercial Law.

Time: 10.30am to 2.00pm
Venue: Victoria Park Golf Complex

“COVID-19 Vaccinations: 4 key questions for employers”

COVID-19 Vaccinations are coming and apart from the issues around the rollout, a major consideration for employers is the obligations around:

 - Directing an employee to take the vaccination;

 - Dealing with 3rd parties who obligate (or highly recommend) that vaccinations be in place;

 - Dealing with inevitable objections by employees.

Jonathan Mamaril, Director of NB Lawyers - Lawyers for Employers will provide a brief on the "4 key questions for an Employer to consider regarding CVOD-19 vaccinations in the workplace". This is a hot topic and Jonathan has already been asked by news.com.au, Queensland Times and Sky News to comment on this topic and in particular the legal obligations of employers as opposed to the current debate raging about the safety of the vaccine.

Jonathan will focus on the employment law implications and give a brief on the current lay of the land for business as we deal with the after-effects of the pandemic.
