Employment is undoubtedly an extremely important part of our daily lives and it is often quite distressing when a problem arises in the workplace.

Our team of employment lawyers is here to help you fight for your rights and achieve everything that you are entitled to under the Australian employment law.

Our employment lawyers take the time to listen to your objectives in order to provide you with reasonable and sound advice. We act in your best interests at all times and will not hesitate to take an aggressive stance when necessary.

Our areas of expertise cover:

– Redundancy;

– Discrimination;
– Contract related matters;
