Employment Law

Our employment lawyers in Perth are highly experienced in all aspects of employment law.

In recent years the system of regulation of industrial relations in Australia has undergone dramatic change. With the introduction of the National Employment Standards (NES) and modern awards under the Fair Work Act 2009, employers and employees now have more to consider than ever before. Our employment lawyers can work with you to advise and guide you through this change.

The Fair Work Ombudsman and the ATO are both undertaking public campaigns in relation to sham contracting (particularly in the building and construction sectors). It is important for businesses to correctly classify their workers as either employees or independent contractors (see the article in the Publications section on this topic). The incorrect classification of workers can (and has) led to unfair dismissal claims and severe sanctions and can also impact on termination of employment, workers compensation, superannuation and payroll tax.
