The Termination of Employment for Employers
There may be times where termination of employment is a necessity as the services of the employee are no longer required. However, the employee cannot simply be dismissed without reason. That will open up the possibility of compensation via a claim, and that is tough to deal with for an employer.
The law is clear for employers when it comes to this issue. However, our company has the legal expertise to correctly advise you and your business if you find yourself in this particular situation.
As lawyers that specialise in this part of the law, it means we will make sure that any need to dismiss employees will be done in accordance with the laws as set out by the fair work commission. There are genuinely times where employment must come to an end, but as lawyers we are there to make sure that no problems are forthcoming.
Termination of Employment for Employees
Being the victim of unfair dismissal from your place of employment is never nice. However, employment law does state that certain criteria must be followed, or legal complications can arise.
Just simply being dismissed is never good enough. Employees have protection in place to stop this from happening, but most employees simply never turn to anybody for advice.
As lawyers operating within this field in Melbourne, we are only at the other end of a phone. Our team is on hand to provide you with answers to any questions you have regarding not only our services, but where you, as employees, stand.
Call us today to get professional and valid advice, and to see if you are indeed eligible for a redundancy package, or even claiming compensation due to your employment contract being terminated. A lawyer is waiting to help with your claims, and we will look at your own individual circumstances before we guide you through the entire claims process.
Redundancy and Compensation
Unfair dismissal leads to compensation. That is something that the likes of the fair work commission feel strongly about, and we feel the exact same. Unfair dismissal is something that sadly happens too often, but the story should never end there.
The fair work act 2009 is in place to help. As experienced lawyers, who offer a wide range of services, we will address your claim for compensation against the business in question. Then, we will look at the circumstances for your contract being terminated and determine if the conduct of the business was illegal.
To do this, we need to go through the correct process. We look at the different details regarding discrimination, your conduct and your overall performance at work. We make sure that our clients feel that we are doing our job and that they are being listened to during the consultation.
Now, we cannot tell you what the outcome is going to be at the initial consultation. That is something that will only be determined by the finer details of what is going on. However, our clients know that we are on their site, and this applies no matter the situation.
