What is Employment Law?
Employment law issues are relevant to any business that has employees or contractors. This means that even if you are a sole trader or freelancer yourself, employment law will apply if you are hiring staff or working with contractors.
Employment Law deals with the legislation, administrative rules, precedents and procedures of governmental agencies, as well as the legal responsibilities and rights of workers, trade unions, and employers. The interplay between these elements can create complexities that require specialist employment lawyers. Working with a team of employment lawyers will ensure contracts, salary issues, award levels, legal obligations, and other procedures are set up and followed from the start, protecting your rights as an employer.
