Employment Law

Employment Law Solicitors for advice on employer’s rights and obligations under current employment law

As an employer you are expected to be compliant and up-to-date with all the laws governing Australian workplaces and employment. We understand that in reality, unless you have an in-house legal team, that’s a very big ask.

Our experienced workplace lawyers provide affordable first-class legal services in plain English, without the jargon.

We provide proactive, practical advice on all employment law issues and as much, or as little, support as you need.

We can help you implement and manage:

  • New employment contracts
