We all have rights, duties, and responsibilities whether we are an employer or an employee. Our skilled Employment Lawyers can help you to understand your position, draft documents on your behalf, negotiate on your behalf, or help you enforce your rights.

Most Australian workers are protected by the Fair Work Act, which provides for a range of workplace entitlements and standards. The Fair Work Act creates lawful rights, duties, and responsibilities. In addition, there are other rights duties, and responsibilities imposed by general law and State/Territory laws.

Some employees may be covered by State or Territory laws. This is usually the case where an employee works for a State or Territory Government.

​Employment Relationships

Often the first issue that needs to be addressed is whether an employer/employee relationship exists. Usually, this is straightforward because of a written or verbal employment contract and the type of relationship. Some relationships such as an employer and contractor may or may not have an employer/employee relationship. This depends on the facts and circumstances. In some cases where parties did not intend to have an employer/employee relationship, the law may force the relationship on the parties. If you are unclear on whether you have an employer/employee relationship contact us.
