Whether you are buying a business, selling a business, buying or selling a franchise or simply wanting advice on the best possible structure for your business, our Business Lawyers can assist you with commercial, practical and cost-effective advice.
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).
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.
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.
