Disputes in the workplace can be difficult and unpleasant for both employers and employees… so it is essential you have a complete understanding of your employment law requirements.
Employment law is an ever-changing minefield of rights, entitlements, responsibilities and obligations and it is essential you get professional advice when needed. We are here to advise you on all your rights and responsibilities as an employee or employer.
If you are a business you must know what your employment law obligations are to your employees.
It is important when you are considering hiring new employees for your business that you have a written contract for the services to be provided. This is so each party is aware of their obligations to one and other over the course of your relationship. This requires you to have an understanding of contract law.
Sometimes you may find yourself in a situation where an employee is not performing the way you hoped. It is important that you implement the right disciplinary procedures before you make the decision to terminate, like making the appropriate warnings. Otherwise you may find yourself in a nasty and costly legal dispute that isn’t just costly to your wallet but your reputation as an employer.
Getting the right advice from the outset can go a long way to protecting your business. From advice about hiring contractors, insurance, superannuation and Workplace Health and Safety, our team can help.
