Terminations and disciplinary actions - Why you need a lawyer
Assisting you in ending employment relationships
Ending employment relationships can often be an uncomfortable experience depending on the circumstances of your situation. Our experienced lawyers are able to provide representation and advice to both employers and employees in relation to ending employment relationships and how to successfully move forward.
Advising employers on disciplinary actions
It is not uncommon for employers to have to implement disciplinary actions to address unacceptable employee behaviour. We are well placed to advise employers on preventative steps to avoid issues of, for example, workplace bullying to result in a positive outcome in the workplace for all involved.
Rectifying employee concerns
We can practically assist with the implementation of relevant steps to correctly rectify employee concerns such as what they might expect with disciplinary actions in the workplace. We are also well equipped to deal with your concerns regarding a termination you feel is unfair or unjustified.
Adhering to rules concerning dismissal
Employment can end for a variety of reasons. An employee may resign or be dismissed by their employer. Regardless of the circumstances, it is important to ensure the rules concerning dismissal, notice, consultation and final pay are adhered to. A lawyer can help employees and employers understand their rights and obligations relating to their situation.
