We act for both employers and employees in employment law and workplace relations matters. We provide comprehensive workplace relations advice across the duration of the employment relationship – from contract negotiation and formation, workplace policies, recovery of employment entitlements, performance management, through to termination. Any advice that we provide is conscious of the provisions of the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth).
The Fair Work Act is the main piece of legislation that governs the employee/employer relationship in Australia. It provides a safety net of minimum entitlements, enables flexible working arrangements and fairness at work and prevents discrimination against employees. Any good workplace relations advice must take the provisions of the Fair Work Act into account.
We strive to provide solutions based advice and place a focus on effective dispute resolution, rather than litigation.
Often, workplace relations disputes can arise between an employer and employee over disciplinary proceedings due to employee performance. We understand that handling disciplinary proceedings requires discretion and an efficient commercial resolution.
Contact our employment law team to discuss how we can assist with your present disciplinary proceedings, or to provide holistic advice on how to best manage your business’ workplace relations and compliance with employment law.
