Employment or labour disputes

Employment law disputes can be a major challenge for businesses of all sizes. These disputes can arise from a variety of situations, including discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, wage violations, and breach of employment contracts.

Discrimination and harassment in the workplace can be a serious issue, and it is important for both employers and employees to understand their legal obligations in this area. NSW law prohibits discrimination and harassment based on protected attributes such as race, gender, age, and disability, among others. If an employee believes they have been subjected to discrimination or harassment, they may be able to file a complaint with the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board or take legal action.

Unfair dismissal occurs when an employer terminates an employee's employment in a way that is harsh, unjust, or unreasonable. In NSW, employees who believe they have been unfairly dismissed may be able to bring a claim before the Fair Work Commission or the NSW Industrial Relations Commission. It is important for employers to ensure that they have a valid reason for dismissing an employee and that they follow the correct procedures to avoid any potential claims of unfair dismissal.

Employees in NSW are entitled to receive a minimum wage and a range of other entitlements, such as sick leave, annual leave, and long service leave. Employers must ensure that they comply with these obligations, and disputes can arise if an employee believes they have not been paid the correct amount or have been denied entitlements. Employees may be able to make a claim before the Fair Work Commission or the NSW Industrial Relations Commission to seek compensation for any unpaid wages or entitlements.
