Employment Law & Industrial Relations

Unfair Dismissal, Discrimination and Harassment

The implications of Employment Law are complex and far-reaching, there are many and varied considerations to be taken into account to determine your entitlements in cases of unfair dismissal, wrongful dismissal and constructive dismissal.

If you are currently experiencing conflict, harassment and/or intimidation in your workplace you have rights that can be exercised under the law and we advocate taking action early before your situation gets to the stage of dismissal.

If you have recently been dismissed you’ll need to act quickly because you only have only 21 days after you’ve been dismissed to lodge a claim.

Equal Opportunity

The Equal Opportunity Act 2010 serves to strengthen discrimination law and encourage the elimination of discrimination or victimisation in the workplace.

Discrimination can be harsh and impersonal but we treat each case from an individual’s perspective with a highly client-focussed approach.

We spend the time to get to the central issues to establish a comprehensive understanding of your situation. By isolating the real cause of the discrimination you are experiencing, we can deliver an effective and positive outcome.
