Employment Law

The relationship between employees and employers is one of the most important aspects of our daily lives. Special consideration of the employment agreement will assist both parties in meeting each other’s obligations. However, sometimes those obligations are not met and assistance may be required to resolve any number of issues. We are able to assist at many levels:

  • Employment agreements (contract of service)
  • Individual contractor agreement (contract for service)
  • Drafting and offering agreements
  • Understanding the terms of an agreement
  • Trial periods, work experience, casual, part-time, full-time or fixed term agreements
  • Warnings and misconduct
  • Personal grievances
  • Redundancy
  • Individual contractor agreements
  • Procedures
  • Alternative dispute resolution
  • Health and safety in the workplace

Procedures (redundancy, warnings, and personal grievances)
