Got burning questions? We’ve got answers

In Australia, both the employee and employer have rights in the workplace. When it comes to employer rights in Australia, employers have a responsibility to provide safe working conditions for every employee in the business. All rights and responsibilities are outlined in relevant laws and legislation including the National Employment Standards and Fair Work Act 2009.

Workplace litigation is a broad area of the law that involves unfair dismissal, discrimination, and adverse action claims. Employees and employers can engage in workplace litigation with the assistance of specialist workplace litigation lawyers.

An unfair dismissal lawyer is a professional lawyer who specialises in workplace or employment law and who can be retained by both employees or employers to defend or prosecute an unfair dismissal claim.

Workplace litigation mitigation refers to both the employee and employer taking deliberate, positive steps towards lessening the impacts that dismissal will have on both parties by seeking to come to a resolution or agreement in the matter.

To lodge a claim for unfair dismissal, employees need to follow the information and guidance found on the Fair Work Commission website. The form found on this website allows you to make a claim, provide all the evidence required, and start the process of resolving the dispute with your employer. Certain requirements must be met such as submitting your claim within the time-limits provided.
