Employment Lawyers for Public Servants

As lawyers for public servants, we have experience in representing public sector employees who are experiencing employment law issues, such as disciplinary action or performance management.

In Queensland, public servants may have different rights and entitlements to other employees due to being employed under the Public Service Act 2008 (Qld) or Local Government Act 2009 (Qld).

Public sector employees face claims that refer to a particular workplace policy or a contravention of a standard or code of conduct. Our experienced employment lawyers can guide public servants through any legal issue and are dedicated to ensuring rules of natural justice and procedural fairness apply to any situation.

We have significant experience in effectively assisting clients to deal with issues in a practical way and provide strong advocacy when litigating issues that are not able to be resolved through negotiation. Contact our employment lawyers if you seek advice or representation.
