Experienced Employment Lawyers

Our Employment Lawyers have broad experience dealing with front-end employment matters (such as preparing employment contracts and HR policies and procedures) and back-end employment matters (unfair dismissal, discrimination claims and other employment disputes).

Why it’s important to ensure employment contracts, policies and procedures are up to date

The Australian employment landscape is constantly changing and the Fair Work Act and other employment legislation, both at State and Federal level, are changed more frequently by governments than any other legislation. It is therefore very important to ensure that employment contracts, policies and procedures are regularly updated to reflect the latest changes to employment laws. Failure to do so can result in employers being in breach of employment laws which could result in fines and potential investigation and prosecution by the Fair Work Ombudsman.

We are experienced in dealing with employment disputes including unfair dismissal, harassment and underpayment of wage claims

Back-end employment issues need to be resolved quickly because they have the potential to hurt an employer’s business and affect employees. Such issues can indirectly affect a business’ customers and have a knock-on affect on the business’ bottom line. Our Employment Lawyers have experience in dealing with a variety of employment disputes, both at the Fair Work Commission and through courts, including with unfair dismissal claims, harassment and bullying claims, claims dealing with employment restraints of trade, protection of confidential information, claims involving underpayment or non-payment of wages, leave and other employment entitlements and investigations instituted by the Fair Work Ombudsman. Our firm has experience in acting for employers and employees in such matters.

Regardless of whether you are an employer business or an employee, you can rest assured that the Employment Lawyers at our firm will handle your employment matter diligently, efficiently and cost effectively and work to obtain the best possible result for you.
