Employment and industrial law is an ever-changing area of the business landscape in Australia. Legislation is continuously evolving and employment claims and compensation payments continue to rise. The right expertise and experience can make all the difference in enabling businesses to effectively manage their risks, and in ensuring individuals fully understand their rights.
Keypoint’s workplace relations team has the experience and expertise necessary to navigate this complex area of law. We advise on all employment related issues from the hiring of new staff to the termination of employment, including performance management, disciplinary issues and grievances, redundancies and the protection of company goodwill. We help companies ensure their employment documentation is up to date to reduce risk and improve employee efficiency. Our lawyers appear in all industrial tribunals and courts and can assist with any employment related litigation. We assist clients with enterprise bargaining, complying with good faith bargaining obligations, workplace health and safety, and equal opportunity and anti-discrimination matters.
We also help individuals on their own employment rights, regularly scrutinising contracts and giving guidance on employment documentation, discrimination, bullying and harassment. We offer proactive solutions ranging from mediation and conciliation, all the way to the prosecution of claims in employment tribunals.
