Employment Law

Namadgi Legal has employment lawyers in Canberra to help you understand your workplace rights whether you are an employee or employer.

Employees and employers must follow the laws set out by the Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth). Employers must also follow the National Employment StandardsThese laws apply nation wide; however, there are some laws which are State specific. Figuring out which laws apply as well as when they apply is a difficult task. Luckily, Namadgi Legal has employment law specialists to guide you. 

For Employers

Complying with all regulations and laws can prevent  a lot of legal problems down the track including workplace investigations. During a workplace investigation, the Fair Work Ombudsman attends your workplace to collect evidence. The evidence will be used to determine which laws apply and if they have been followed. The easiest way to avoid this is to make sure you understand which laws you need to follow and how to follow them.

Some of the things you may want to think about are:

A. Whether you have complied with workplace health and safety requirements,

B.  If the employment contract follows the standards set by the National Employment Standards (including pay rates as well as termination and redundancy) and 

C. If you have contractors or employees?
