It’s fantastic when you have a great job. After all, you spend so much of your time at work that you really should love what you do.
But sadly this is not the case for everyone.
A workplace environment can also be a source of unrelenting stress if there are legal issues surrounding your work.
Employment law issues
Employment law can cover a broad spectrum of workplace matters. It can apply to permanent and casual employees, contractors, apprentices and trainees and sometimes even volunteers.
Some employment law issues include:
- Unfair dismissal
- Constructive dismissal (for example, an employee being told to quit their job or risk being sacked)
- Underpayment of wages
- Unsafe work problems
- Performance management
- Bullying and harassment issues
- Breach of employment contract, industrial award or workplace agreement
- Protection of young workers
Often the worker is at a disadvantage when having to deal with management for any of these issues and it can really help to have the guidance of an experienced employment lawyer. Websters Lawyers has a team of specialists in this field who can:
- Provide legal advice
- Discuss strategy
- Stay in the background if necessary
- Represent you at meetings with management
- Represent you in the Fair Work Commission or the South Australian Employment Tribunal if the issue escalates.
The right advice from the start
It’s important to understand that like most legal issues, the sooner you get legal advice, the better off you’ll be. And with a legal team that has expertise in every major legal area, we’re sure to be able to assist you. This is especially important if there are other legal issues involved. For example, your employer may be disciplining you over a matter in which you were injured at work. That means that not only will you need employment law advice, you may also have a workers compensation claim.
