Do you need assistance with an employment issue?
There’s no denying that work takes up a significant part of our lives. So when it comes to employment issues, it’s important that you get the right legal advice.
We understand workplace issues such as unfair dismissal claims, employment agreement interpretation and employment contracts can be difficult to understand and navigate.
Misconduct allegations, discipline and unfair dismissal
If you’ve been subject to an investigation into your workplace behaviour or have been unfairly dismissed, it’s likely to be a stressful time.
You may feel that you haven’t been given the opportunity to be properly heard, or that your actions have been misunderstood, and the outcome will have significant consequences for your finances, family and your reputation.
Few things are more important, and that’s why it is vital to get legal advice.
Having legal representation that can advocate on your behalf and advise you on your rights will enable you to achieve the best outcome.
If you’re thinking of pursuing an unfair dismissal or other Fair Work Commission claim, it’s important that you don’t delay in getting legal advice. Time limits are rigid, and it is important to choose the right type of action to pursue from the outset.

Navigating federal and state laws relating to employer and employee obligations can be a minefield.
As an employer, it is important to protect your business from competition, breaches of confidentiality and the risk of being exposed to legal action if you don’t correctly pay your staff their lawful entitlements.
If you’re an employee, you need to be confident that you’re receiving your full entitlements under the law.
