Your Employment Law Specialists

Our employment solicitors act for a broad range of employers including entrepreneurial start-ups, well established businesses and professional services firms.  We specialise in advising both employees and employers on all aspects of Australian employment law, which gives us added insight.  We fully appreciate our clients' commercial aims and pressures and take them into account when advising. We always do our utmost to turn potential problems into solutions.  

Employment Contracts

Allied Legal drafts and negotiates employment contracts on behalf of employers and employees.  We also advise on specific contractual issues including breach of employment contracts, restraints of trade and more.

It's vital to review and negotiate the terms of your employment contract. This is especially important for senior managerial or executive roles.

We can review your employment contract to ensure that it contains all the benefits and entitlements you've been offered and doesn't compromise your rights. 

ESOPs

Our experienced employment lawyers provide specialist consultancy on employee stock ownership plans (ESOP).  We recognise that ESOPs are a way to get employees more invested in the growth of the business.  

Establishing a proper ESOP in your startup will confer many benefits upon the employee as well as your company.  We specilaise in preparing tax effective ESOPs and other incentive arrangements.

Employment Disputes

Contact us to help you resolve your employment disputes.  Whether you are an employer or employee, our commercial lawyers have extensive experience in resolving employment disputes.  This includes everything from unfair dismissal, restraints of trade to other employment based issues.  An unfair dismissal claim is an allegation by an employee that their dismissal was harsh, unjust or unreasonable. This might be the case if there was no valid reason for the dismissal that related to performance or conduct or that dismissal was a disproportionate response.  If you think you have been unfairly dismissed, it is important to obtain legal advice as quickly as possible.

Employment Advice

Our commercial and employment lawyers regularly assist with all aspects of employment law.  This includes employee vs. independent contractor issues, issues pertaining to notice periods, redundancy advice and discrimination issues.

Early employment law advice can help employers in the long-run.  It ensures that key risk areas including (but not limited to), sham contracting, underpayment, discrimination and superannuation can be properly managed.
