For HR Professionals &
In recent times the accessorial liability provisions in the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) are being used more and more to penalise directors, accountants and HR professionals personally when there is found to be a breach of employment law obligations.
This frequently arises in actions brought by the Fair Work Ombudsman (in, for example, underpayment claims), where individuals involved in running the business are named as co-defendants.
You should therefore consider seeking your own independent legal advice if a business you are working with is involved in potential employment law breaches, or if you are joined in an action against an employer.
We also often represent senior executives in employment law matters, whether it be advising on contracts of employment, restraints of trade or in disputes or litigation against their employer.
At EI Legal, we are always happy to have a free, confidential, no-obligation discussion with individuals facing such a situation.
