Veronica Meredith is a Research Officer with the CFCA information exchange at the Australian Institute of Family Studies.
This webinar was held on 26 February 2014.
A limited but growing amount of Australian research into fly-in fly-out (FIFO) work practices tentatively suggests that a FIFO lifestyle can have positive, negative or few effects on children and on family relationships - depending on the circumstances.
In this webinar, Veronica Meredith, Paula Washington, Anne Sibbel, Nicole Ashby, Emmanuel Hondros and Steve Hackett presented findings from the CFCA paper Fly-in fly-out workforce practices in Australia: The effects on children and family relationships.
Implications for research, policy and practice, FIFO families and mining organisations were discussed by an expert panel.
