FOR THE PLANNED AND UNEXPECTED THINGS THAT HAPPEN IN BUSINESS

YOUR PEOPLE & CULTURE SOLUTIONS

Experienced in Employment Law

While we’re not a law firm, all our advisors are legally qualified and practising employment lawyers, with experience in both Australian and UK employment law. We offer a range of employment law services, including litigation, mediation for workplace conflict, legal claims, unfair dismissal claims, employment contracts and other areas of workplace law. This also means we can pursue legal proceedings should the situation call for it.

As set out at the start of each engagement, while we have an employment law team, Workplace Wizards is not a law firm and does not provide legal advice. Legally speaking, we offer consulting advice, not legal advice. Whether your business needs timely advice on a single issue or guidance in an area of employee management, Workplace Wizards will work closely with you to help you get the best result for your workplace.

If you have any questions about our advice or the services we offer, you can read more about our lawyers here, or talk to our team today. Alternatively, contact our partner business Launch Legal, a leading employment law firm.

This is a question that all business owners should ask themselves at some point. The truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer – it depends on the specific needs of your business. Working with law firms can sometimes be difficult and make things more complicated. However, there are certain times when it’s definitely a good idea to seek legal advice from an expert in the field. It all depends on the complexity of the legal issues you face and the frequency of which you find yourself needing employment lawyers. If you need fast and accessible legal advice, employing the services of a workplace lawyer may be a good idea.

If you find yourself stuck with a complicated workplace legal issue or if you’re unsure about something that could possibly have legal ramifications, it’s a good idea to bring in the experts. An employment lawyer or workplace lawyer can provide you with the advice or services you need.

Here are some of the most common reasons it may be a good idea to hire experienced employment lawyers:

  • if your business is facing a major labour relations crisis;
  • if you have overlapping jurisdiction with other business units or departments;
  • if you are writing up contracts for clients or employees;
  • if an employee has filed an unfair dismissal claim;
  • anything related to the Fair Work Act.
