Employment Disputes For Employees

If you are an employee:

When disputes arise between employers and employees, it can be an unpleasant and trying time for everyone involved. These days, we all spend a great deal of our time at work so when the employment relationship turns sour, it can cause a great deal of stress and disruption. Resolving the dispute quickly and with discretion is generally in the best interest of both the employee and the employer. When an employment dispute arises, it’s best to contact a lawyer for legal advice as soon as possible. You may have rights under the employment contract or legislation that can be enforced to resolve things quickly and effectively.

Getting a lawyer involved in your employment dispute doesn’t necessarily mean that the matter will go to Court. Discussing your case with an experienced employment lawyer can help you to understand where you stand and what your rights are. Lawyers are often able to convince the other party to negotiate a settlement so that the matter is resolved relatively quickly. Where agreement can’t be reached and goes on to the Fair Work Commission (or other independent body) for determination, a skilled employment lawyer can work with you through the process to help you get the best outcome in all the circumstances.

Our employment lawyers have a proven track record of getting results for our clients, having provided advice and representation to employers and employees on a wide range of complex employment issues. We have the knowledge and experience you need to get the best possible outcome, and we can help you in all areas of employment law, including:

  • enforcing discretionary entitlements and bonus schemes;
  • reinstatement of benefits and entitlements;
  • negotiating terms of settlement;
  • unfair dismissal claims;
  • workplace bullying, harassment, and discrimination; and
  • workplace investigations and disciplinary processes.
