Employment Law


Whether you're an employee or an employer, it is important that you understand your rights and obligations when issues arise in the workplace. Your obligations may arise from your employment contract, or under statute. Professional legal advice and representation is often crucial in any employment dispute to allow you to resolve any conflict relating to those rights and obligations. Shore Lawyers experienced Employment Law Solicitors are able to provide advice and representation in all employment law matters.

Contracts of Employment and Modern Awards

When an employer and employee enter into an employment relationship, specific and certain terms and conditions attach to that relationship, which are usually reduced to a written contract of employment. In the Australian jurisdiction of workplace relations, the contract is generally underpinned by reference to an Award. For example, office workers (including receptionists, executive or personal assistants and administrators) are generally covered by the terms of the Clerks’ (Private Sector) Award 2010. This award sets the minimum terms and conditions of employment that apply to the employee’s employment. Modern awards are industry specific. Thus there are awards that cover employees in most industries and occupations.

Due to the large number of awards in operation and their complexity, it is best to obtain legal advice from Shore Lawyers to ensure that you refer to the relevant award for your business, undertaking or enterprise. We can also provide advice to employees and employers in relation to contracts of employment.

Termination of Employment & Performance Management

We would like to assure you that your development application / DA approval process can run much smother with engagement of competent legal advisors right at from the initiation of the application.

Experienced in all aspects of civil litigation, we can also help you resolve issues with the local council if it mishandles the development application process and you end up with a DA refusal as a result.

We also help clients work with circumstances where council has given you adverse notices under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act (NSW) 1979.

Occupational Health & Safety

In today’s business environment, occupational or workplace health and safety matters raise important and significant legal risks and commercial considerations.

Every employer irrespective of the size of their workforce or the industry in which they operate have obligations in ensuring that they provide employees with safe systems of work, which include safe premises to work. These obligations are mutual. This means that employers and employees have significant obligations to ensure the health safety and welfare of each other.

The obligation affects employees as much as it impacts upon employers. Traditionally, this obligation derives from the common law; but today this obligation has its origins in statute and Acts of Parliament.

Some industries may be more accident or incident prone than others. Industries including road transport, building/construction, agriculture and consumer manufacturing will have robust industry regulations in place. Whereas employers in hospitality, gaming, food-service, medical, retail, clerical and general administrative industries will each have different pressures specific to their workplaces and business environments.

If you are an employee, an employer, volunteer or visitor to a workplace, Shore Lawyers can advise you as to your rights and obligations under OHS.
