Employment Law

Your employees are a major resource and expense of your business. Effectively managing the employment relationship is the key to any successful enterprise.

Your employment challenges will change as your business changes and it is important to be aware of developments in employment law and how they may affect you.

At Trinity Law, we can help you through all the stages of the employment relationship from engaging new employees and managing employee conduct and expectations during employment through to ending the relationship and beyond.

Like everything in business, the engagement of employees carries an element of risk but if you are pro-active in understanding the issues you face as an employer, you can manage that risk, minimising your legal liability and the costs to your business.

The employment relationship can be complex. Not only is it important to have a written employment agreement, you also need to have an understanding of how employment is affected by legislation, awards and enterprise agreements and other concepts which are implied into the employment relationship.

We can help you with:

  • Employment agreements
  • Enterprise agreements
  • Workplace policies tailored to your business
  • Advice on Awards and how they work in practice
  • Termination of employment including how to dismiss an employee fairly
  • Advice on misconduct or performance issues
  • Advice on redundancies and restructures
  • Post-employment restraints
  • Advice and representation on unfair dismissal and breach of general protections applications
  • Workplace bullying and sexual harassment
  • Discrimination issues
  • Work health and safety
  • Managing ill and injured employees
  • Staff training

Trinity Law can help you to navigate through the complexities of the employment relationship and provide you with pragmatic and practical advice, suited to your particular business.

For businesses without a dedicated HR professional, we are available to provide quick advice on all HR issues.
