Redundancy Planning For Buisnesses

Is your company looking to downsize or redistribute tasks and roles? Are you looking to restructure the business or focus on core tasks, which may involve redundancy, relocation or redeployment? Strict rules apply in these circumstances, and consideration must be made of awards, contracts, consultation periods and other legislative requirements. At Adelaide Legal we have worked with employers and employees in this work space, and can help you navigate the process and avoid the pitfalls.

Work Place Bullying Allegations

Allegations of bullying in the workplace is a traumatising experience, both for the individual and the company. The ramifications to your business can be significant and ongoing if not dealt with promptly, sympathetically and transparently. At Adelaide Legal we understand the importance of handling these delicate matters with care and consideration, and we are here to guide you through the reporting process and beyond.  Talk to a lawyer who cares. You matter to us.

General Protections: Discrimination And Other Adverse Action

The Fair Work Act 2009 provides protections of certain rights, including work place rights, freedom from unlawful discrimination, undue influence or pressure in negotiating individual agreements and the right to engage in industrial activities. If you have to defend a claim of discrimination in the workplace due to race, age, gender or religion, amongst more, we are here to help.
