Employment Law & WHS

The constantly changing and complex nature of legislation in the field of employment law and occupational health and safety has meant that companies have become increasingly reliant on expert legal advice and representation.

At Coleman Greig, our team of experienced workplace relations lawyers can ensure you understand your rights, responsibilities and legal obligations in the field as well as managing the risks of disputed claims. We work with your business to ensure your compliance with the relevant legislation and provide strategic advice to minimise the potential for employment disputes and, in the case of employee safety, exposure to workplace incidents.

As jobs become more technical and the labor market becomes global, many businesses find themselves in the position of having to recruit internationally for skilled employees. Coleman Greig can provide you with specialised immigration advice to help your business. Our team of qualified and experienced Registered Migration Agents is available for clients who are dealing with the complex and rapidly changing laws that govern both temporary and permanent entry into Australia.

In addition, we have experienced employment law and WHS litigators within the team who can successfully represent your business in courts and tribunals should the need arise.

We can help you with: 

  • Performance Management and Employment Terminations 
  • Unfair Dismissal and General Protections claims, including claims of Adverse Action, Prohibited Conduct and Sham Contracting
