My job is important to me and my family. How can I make sure I protect it?

Our employment team are specialists in their field and passionate about helping people safeguard their rights. We know Canberra inside out, and have years of experience dealing with employment issues arising out of the ACT’s big employers: Commonwealth and ACT government, national institutions, foreign embassies, our education institutions and hospitals, and our thriving property & construction industry.

We frequently represent individuals in the Fair Work Commission, Human Rights Commission and Federal Courts on a range of matters including termination of employment (including adverse action, unfair dismissal and redundancy), Award and contract entitlements, and discrimination or sexual harassment. If you find yourself the subject of performance management or a code of conduct investigation, we can support you through the process and make sure your responses to your employer best protect your interests.

We also love helping people who are not in a dispute but who just want some assistance negotiating the terms of their new employment contract, or wrapping up a working relationship with the minimum of fuss.
