You might not believe this but, if you don’t need us – we’ll tell you. This is why we offer a fixed fee initial consultation – to discuss the problem you have, figure out if it’s a legal problem and if so, how best to help you with it. If it’s not strictly a legal problem, but could be assisted by some legal know-how, then we can provide you with that too. We try to empower our clients – we don’t just aim to help you, we aim to explain what is happening and what tools you and your lawyer can use to get you through it. Even so, sometimes legal processes can be confusing to people who aren’t used to them – separating from your partner, buying or selling a house, starting a business – and you want to get it right. Getting it right is the lawyer’s job. So if you want to get it right the first time then yes, you need a lawyer.
Our employment lawyer is adept at drafting and interpreting employment contracts to make sure employees and employers are equally provided for. A well drafted employment contract must meet certain obligations under relevant awards can save a lot of argument later. If, however, your employment contract was not drafted by us, we are still happy to advise you on your rights as an employee or employer including wrongful dismissal, leave and wage entitlements, training and work-related expenses and specialist provisions.
We are experienced at guiding both employees and employers through Fair Work and Industrial litigation.
