At EPS Lawyers, we represent employees from many different types of industries and trades. And, we understand that most employees have the same work goals: to be fulfilled, appreciated, recognised… and paid properly.
This is where our in-house experience working for some of the largest employers in Australia gives us an edge. We know how employers think and we use this knowledge to keep our employee clients one step ahead of the game.
Termination of employment is often stressful, and the situation can be made worse when your employer hasn’t treated you properly. That’s when our experienced litigators step in to protect you and your rights. If you have been the victim of unfair dismissal, harassment and discrimination, adverse action or breach of contract, we will fight for you, to get you your legal entitlements. We can also work to get your job back.
Our termination services also include breach of contract, restraint of trade disputes, and we can assist when your employer has engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct.
If your employer makes your role redundant, we can help with that too, negotiating your exit package or advising on whether the redundancy is lawful.
If you have been injured at work and thinking of making a Work Cover claim, we can explain the complex legislation and advise on your entitlements, options and the process.
If you have been fired, don’t delay getting in touch with us. Time is of the essence – most claims must be filed within 21 days of the termination.
Whether it’s making sure your employment contract is perfectly negotiated, understanding Awards and Enterprise Agreements, or ensuring you get your proper entitlements, EPS Lawyers know what you deserve and how to get it for you.
Disputes during employment
At times during your employment, you may experience unpleasant workplace situations.
Even if these stressful events don’t lead to termination, you can benefit from legal help: for example, if you are the victim of workplace bullying, our advice can help you through it and explain your rights.
We also conduct workplace investigations, so if you are a complainant, witness or victim in an investigation, EPS Lawyers can advocate on your behalf, review the process, or advise and support you through it.
We advise our clients on all stages of the employment process. Our pre-employment services include advising on discriminatory hiring practices, criminal record checks, and contract negotiation.
