Are you an employee? Talk to us today.

Our lawyers can advise you across a full range of employment-related laws as well as provide effective representation in matters of unfair dismissals, adverse actions, discrimination, sexual harassment, payment terminations and occupational health and safety, including workplace bullying.

The Fair Work Act provides numerous protections to employees, and any breach from the employers’ side must be challenged at the earliest. We help you establish breach of duty or negligence by leading negotiations with your employer’s legal team or if required, argue your case in court. When facing a more powerful party, you need to play your cards right while retaining your professionalism. Our personalised advice and sound legal strategies have enabled clients to emerge unscathed and victorious.

Even if you don’t believe you have a strong case, you should not lose hope. If you have been wronged, we will find a way to bring your claim and take it to its logical conclusion. Our deep awareness of the many issues facing individuals at the workplace has consistently allowed us to obtain favourable outcomes and help employees get their life back on track and move on to better things.

We are also a trusted source for employees seeking to clearly understand the terms and conditions of their employment contract.
