EMPLOYMENT LAW SPECIALISTS

The last 10 years in Australia has seen significant changes in employment law, for both employers and employees. Changes in Government seem to bring about more significant changes in the future if the current media is any guide.

When the law is in such a state of flux it is even more important that you get the right advice. This is even more so with the ever present influence of social media in our lives, and there are many traps and pitfalls for employers and employees alike in this area alone.

For employers, often the second biggest expense in any business and a constant cause of stress for small business in particular, is getting the right employees, maintaining their productivity and, if and when the occasion arises, terminating those employees according and adhering to employment law. This can be critical to your cash flow, productivity and the all important culture of any business. Get it wrong and there can be dramatic consequences.
