As such, our workplace lawyers mediate many aspects of the relationship between trade unions, employers and employees. And when you speak to Owen Hodge Lawyers, you’re speaking to the best workplace lawyers Sydney has to offer.

Workplace law is generally enforced by government agencies, and it is the role of employment lawyers to remain up to date and informed about the law and changes in the law.

The special circumstances, procedures and complexities require the inclusion of an experienced workplace lawyer from the earliest opportunity should an issue arise.

Workplace Lawyers Can Provide:

  • Strategic advice in planning and managing employment contracts and issues;
  • Assistance in avoiding, managing and resolving industrial disputes through advice or active representation in industrial negotiations and before relevant tribunals and courts;
  • Quick practical advice about the application of relevant legislation, awards and agreements;
  • Advice on the wide range of workplace law issues.
  • Advice on workplace bullying laws and anti-bullying strategies.

Why a Workplace Lawyer is Critical

Employment and workplace law is complex and requires unique procedures that warrant hiring an experienced employment lawyer.

Issues must be managed correctly, and the right decisions must be made for effective outcomes. Whether you are an employer or an employee, it is critical to know and understand how to respond.

Hiring an experienced lawyer is the only way to manage serious employment situations. You should expect to receive advice and counsel on the following:

  • Confidentiality, restraint of trade, and non-compete clauses
  • Employment contracts
  • Employment policy guidelines in the workplace
  • Fair Work Australia claims
  • How to manage claims for unfair dismissal or unlawful termination
  • Negotiating for redundancy packages

While these are only some of the common subjects in which legal advice is helpful, workplace solicitors are not limited in their ability to provide legal counsel and action for any employment issue.
