Your references should always appear on a separate page .Your reference list is inconsistent and needs proofreading for accuracy and adherence to APA 6th requirements.

Byrnes, M. (2013). Employees’ dismissal for emailing porn found unfair. Law Society Journal, October 2013. Lecturer's comment 2:
Volume and issue number? Page numbers? "October 2013" does not conform to APA style for recording the publication date.

DePree, C.M., & Jude, R.K., (2006). Who’s reading your office e-mail? Is that legal? HR Management, Strategic Finance, April, 2006. 45-47. Lecturer's comment 4:
Incorrect punctuation. If HR Management is the journal title (it isn't, by the way), what is Strategic Finance? This is not the correct place to include publication dates. Where are the volume and issue numbers?

Fenely, R. (2014, October 25). Poetry professor tests line between satire and bigotry. The Sydney Morning Herald, p.29. Lecturer's comment 6:
Punctuation incorrect. I presume you did not locate and use a hard copy of the newspaper. This should therefore be referenced as an online newspaper article, including "Retrieved from" and the url.
