Workplace & Employment Law

Mullane & Lindsay regularly provides advice and representation to both workers and employers in this difficult area of Law.

Workplace Issues can often lead to disputes or Court action in relation to termination of employment or contracts; wage or other financial entitlement claims; or working conditions and leave entitlements. In addition, workplace law is in a state of almost constant change, particularly due to the different policy agendas of new governments. We understand how difficult it can be for employers or workers to know their rights and entitlements in many situations. Our team can provide practical advice on a number of common workplace problems, including;

  • Legal rights of and obligations owed to workers and contractors
  • Termination of Employment
  • Redundancy entitlements
  • 'General Protection' claims
  • Rights of employees on a sale of a business
  • Workplace bullying claims
  • OHS Issues including investigations and prosecutions
  • Drafting and Interpretation of employment contracts and other documents relating to the supply of services
  • Superannuation, Income Protection, and Total and Permanent Incapacity Insurance policy entitlement claims
  • Claims for unpaid leave or other entitlements

Despite the introduction of the Fair Work Act which simplified the workplace law regime in NSW considerably, this area continues to change and develop. Mullane & Lindsay can assist both employees and employers to understand the 'new' regime.

Tony Cavanagh lectured final year students in the Faculty of Law at the University of Newcastle for many years, focusing on workplace law issues.  Director Kristy Nunn also has a special interest in workplace issues, having graduated with a major in Industrial Relations.
