Employment Law

Over the years, our experience of advising employers and employees has given us a broad insight into legal and commercial challenges and the emerging and evolving trends in employment law and workplace environment.

At Kingston Lawyers, we are aware that constant changes to employment law have presented a number of compliance issues for our clients.  So, we keep up to date with all developments for you, including the introduction of the new Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) which came into effect on 1 January 2010. We anticipate further legislative reform now that the coalition has come into power.

Standing at the forefront of a changing landscape, our lawyers are well positioned to deliver sound and strategic solutions to help our clients comply with the new workplace laws and procedures.

Our lawyers provide ongoing advice in relation to all aspects of employment, including employment advice and agreements, human resource management, industrial relations strategies, performance management, employee and executive incentives and remuneration, termination and redundancy, equal opportunity, discrimination and diversity, harassment and workplace training. We approach all matters on an individual basis.

We are cognisant of the reality that a business’ success depends on the effective management of its people. That is why we focus on the development of a thorough understanding of our clients’ business as well as its people. Our lawyers appreciate the importance of maintaining constructive relationships with all stakeholders and we work closely with our clients to create solutions best suited to their commercial goals, people strategies and workplace culture.

Our services include:

  • Drafting and negotiating employment contracts
  • Developing workplace policies
  • Advising and representing employers and employees in relation to employment disputes, unfair dismissal, discrimination, and other employment claims
