WORKPLACE & EMPLOYMENT LAW
Workplace disputes have the potential to disrupt your business, causing ongoing anguish for business owners and staff alike.
For example, did you know that your company could be fined up to $54,000 for a breach of the Fair Work Act?
It’s an unfortunate fact that situations involving employees often escalate out of control, due to the amount of emotion involved when dealing with human resources.
