As an employer, it is important to understand your legal rights and how they would apply in the workplace. This is particularly necessary if a workplace dispute emerges. Employment Law addresses the obligations and rights of both employers and employees. It aims to ensure both parties can maintain a positive work relationship, by defining matters like wages, contracts, award provisions, wrongful termination, discrimination, and safety.

How We Can Help

Hiring and Firing

To ensure employees and contractors are engaged by your business in the correct manner, it is essential to comply with relevant employment and taxation laws.

The process of managing difficult and unruly employees requires sound processes and management which should be in place well before the issue reaches a critical point.

Negotiation and Conflict Resolution

We understand the principles, strategies and tactics of effective negotiation, conflict resolution and relationship management to ensure a more productive workforce, including a unionised workforce.

Implementing Award Provisions

Awards are an integral part of the Australian industrial relations system and can be extremely difficult to apply in certain circumstances. Our team is well-geared to guide business owners through the legislative maze.

Policies and Procedures

The need for effective workplace policies and procedures has never been more important in today’s changing workplace. This is driven by changes to legislation, regulation and codes of practice. All businesses should have policies based on best employment practices and ensure they comply with the Fair Work Act and meet minimum obligations.

Workplace Arrangements

An Employment Agreement is a contract used when hiring a new employee. It can be used for a range of different employment types, including full time, part time, casual, and fixed term. This Agreement sets out all of the terms of employment, including job duties, salary and benefits, work hours, confidentiality, annual leave and various other key terms.

An Independent Contractor Agreement is a written contract that spells out the terms of the working arrangement between a contractor and a business and it includes a description of the services provided, the terms and length of the project or service.
