Employment Lawyers for Employees

We understand the significant reputational damage and financial loss that can occur from workplace or employment law issues. Our lawyers provide dedicated advice and representation relating to employment law for employees, workers and contractors. We ensure you receive sound guidance, advice and support for the issues you are faced with in your workplace.

We strive to save our clients time and money by seeking to resolve matters early.  Being results driven means most of our employment law matters are settled swiftly and successfully without the matter proceeding to a court, tribunal or commission.

Where matters do not resolve early our employment lawyers have strong advocacy and trial experience and are able to litigate matters through to completion. Our law firm has local offices in across Queensland, although our employment lawyers regularly undertake work in other areas across Australia.
