Employment Law

Led by partner, Marcus Adams, our team can also assist clients with all things employment law related.

At some point in our lives we all have to work or may even employ workers to work for you. It is therefore imperative that you understand your rights and those of your employees.

Our lawyers have the knowledge to advise clients of their rights and entitlements in accordance with the Fair Work Act 2009 on matters relating to:

  • National Employment Standards (which covers 10 minimum entitlements that have to be provided to all employees)
    • Maximum weekly hours
    • Requests for flexible working arrangements
    • Parental leave and related entitlements
    • Annual leave
    • Personal/carer’s leave, compassionate leave and unpaid family and domestic violence leave
    • Community service leave
    • Long service leave
    • Public holidays
    • Notice of termination and redundancy pay
    • Fair Work Information Statement
  • Employment contracts
  • Performance management
  • Termination of employment including unfair dismissal, redundancy, bankruptcy & liquidation
  • General protection / adverse action claims
  • Workplace disputes
  • Bullying and harassment
  • Award and enterprise agreements
  • Workers compensation
  • Change of business owners

We also have experience dealing with Fair Work Ombudsman, Fair Work Commission, the Fair Work Federal Division of the Federal Court and the Federal Circuit Court, all of which have specific roles to regulate and ensure that minimum employment standards are met for employees.
