Responsive and Pro-Active Advice
Many firms claim to be responsive and offer pro-active advice. We mean it. We take the time to get to understand your awards and agreements, policies and procedures, workplace culture and most importantly – your business objectives. The advice and services we provide are timely and practical. We are focused on achieving and helping you implement your desired outcomes and meeting your strategic objectives.
Our service delivery model gives each client access to at least two partners of the firm. So, if your primary contact is in court or on leave, you will always have access to a senior practitioner to deal with urgent matters. All of our partners provide their after hours contact details to clients.
Broad Array of HR Legal Services
The human resources focused services we provide include both traditional human resources focused legal services and beyond. Our traditional human resources focused legal services include:
- employment agreements/contracts and enterprise agreements for your employees
- policies and procedures such as Alcohol and Drug Testing and Anti-Discrimination/Harassment
- advising on recruitment, employee obligations and entitlements, dismissal and redundancy
- representing you in the courts, commissions and tribunals if employee-related disputes turn litigious.
In addition to traditional legal services, we also:
- provide onsite training in areas such as OH&S, Equal Opportunity and Anti-Discrimination, Harassment and Bullying
- undertake negotiations with your employees and/or unions in relation to collective employment agreements and workplace policies
- assist and carry out internal workplace investigations
- offer onsite Critical Incident Management for serious OH&S incidents.
We have a number of external affiliates whom we can recommend to assist you in other human resources related areas such as return-to-work, managing difficult Work Cover claims, outplacement and employee counselling.
The HR Legal team is well placed to provide your business with practical and effective legal services to deal with the complex and changing workplace relations environment including Fair Work Australia legislation.
