Industrial Relations

We deal with Industrial Relations Commission matters, defending unfair dismissal claims, Worksafe prosecutions and all other industrial matters.

 

We defend Worksafe prosecutions resulting from serious injuries and breach of the Occupational Safety and Health Act.

We also act for employers in unfair dismissal cases.

We acted for a client in a major Supreme Court Action claiming damages for using company property to set up a business in competition with their employer.  The action settled on terms involving a substantial payout to our clients.

Our practice is located outside of the Perth CBD and because of this our hourly rates are 20% lower than the standard rates charged by most Perth law firms.  Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other commercial law firms.

In a recent Worksafe prosecutions case we ensured that our clients received a fine in line with the lowest possible fine in similar cases around the country.

  • breaches of contracts of employment;
  • deeds of confidentiality;
