Starting a business? Hiring or firing? It is essential to understand the working relationship and get the right legal advice first. We help our clients by negotiating, drafting and/or reviewing employment contracts or independent contractor agreements which are tailored to their commercial or personal needs. We can advise clients on their legal responsibilities under National Employment Standards, the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) as well as in the complex area of Modern Awards.
TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT
To avoid an unfair dismissal or adverse action claim, it is important that an employer follows due process to ensure that a termination of employment is valid. We can assist parties by attending redundancy consultations or performance management meetings.
WORKPLACE TRAINING AND POLICIES
We can tailor workplace policies to your business needs or attend your workplace and provide presentations on hot topics such as appropriate workplace behaviour, anti-discrimination laws, bullying, harassment and social media.
Employers should also minimise their liability under workplace health and safety laws by ensuring their employees and contractors are appropriately trained and supervised.
