For employers

We act for employers of all shapes and sizes, from start-ups and SMEs to major corporations.

Our approach to providing advice is always the same: we want to get to know you and your business so that we can provide practical and commercial advice.

We advise on all aspects of employment law, from obligations that arise when first engaging an employee, right through to matters to be aware of when the employment relationship ends (and everything in between!).

We regularly work with businesses to help them understand their obligations to employees (including modern award coverage, minimum wage obligations and leave entitlements). Through this work we help ensure that our clients are complying with all applicable laws, including those regarding overtime, penalty rates and maximum weekly hours.

We help protect businesses by ensuring they have adequate contracts and policies in place to safeguard confidential information, company assets and client relationships.

When things are going well, we’re there to assist: take-overs, expansions and restructures all impact the workforce and involve aspects of employment law.

When things go wrong we’re there too: long-term absences, redundancies, performance and conduct issues are all matters we advise on frequently. So are instances of bullying, harassment and discrimination.

If your business is facing an employment law claim – whether it be in unfair dismissal, general protections/adverse action, breach of contract, discrimination or otherwise – we can help.

Our lawyers frequently represent clients in employment litigation throughout Australia. Our approach is to robustly defend your claim, but to do it in the most cost effective way as possible: it is usually inadvisable for an employer to spend excessive amounts on legal fees if this reduces the “pot” of money it has to pay to an employee to settle the claim.
