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. We appreciate that 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 an experienced employee lawyer for legal advice as soon as possible.

As an employee you may have rights under the employment contract or legislation that can be enforced to resolve things quickly and effectively. Some claims such as unfair dismissal must be made within certain timeframes. If you are uncertain it is best to make contact with a lawyer and get advice on what your legal options are.

We have helped clients in employment law cases such as:

  • unfair dismissal claims and general protections claims
  • negotiating terms of employment contract
  • enforcing discretionary entitlements and bonus schemes
  • reinstatement of benefits and entitlements
  • negotiating terms of settlement
  • employee shareholder disputes
  • restraint of trade disputes
  • workplace bullying, harassment, and discrimination
  • workplace investigations and disciplinary processes.

Why do you need an employment lawyer?

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.

An employee lawyer will be able to quickly identify the legal issues and provide you with options. Employment law is nuanced and not all commercial lawyers fully are experienced and fully understand employee rights. Getting the right employment law expert is important for getting the best advice.

A seasoned employment lawyer will be able to correspond with the other party to negotiate a settlement and resolve the dispute quickly.

Where agreement can’t be reached it is referred on to the Fair Work Commission (or other independent body) for determination. From there your lawyer will work with you through the process, documentation and appearances to help you get the best outcome in all the circumstances.
