We understand how stressful workplace matters can be and how quickly they can escalate if not efficiently and properly dealt with.

Our experience with employees includes:
  • Representation in Fair Work Commission hearings and conferences for unfair dismissal and general protections applications
  • Executive employment contracts
  • Parental leave and flexible workplace arrangements
  • Advice and guidance on bullying, discrimination and harassment
  • Underpayment of wages
  • Poor performance allegations and misconduct
  • Restraints of trade, non-solicit and confidentiality obligations
  • Negotiating termination or redundancy conditions
Examples of our experience:
  • Assisting a Managing Director who, upon returning from maternity leave, was made redundant – we successfully ran a general protections claim.
  • Negotiating the terms of a restraint clause so that our client was able to go out on their own in the industry without the threat of litigation from their former employer.
  • Conducted cross-jurisdictional negotiations with multiple employers regarding the termination of a high-level executive – ultimately achieving a substantial settlement sum.
  • Advising an employee on how best to combat internal bullying behaviour from superiors.
  • Advising an employee on how to establish his status as an ’employee’ rather than ‘contractor’ with an employer who had company-wide sham contracting arrangements in place.
  • We have extensive experience providing advice to employees. We have seen and heard it all!
  • If you have any questions, just give us a call and we can work together to see how to proceed.
