Redundancies - Workplace Law

By: Workplace Law  06-Dec-2011
Keywords: Law

I advise employers whether they have a potential redundancy situation in law and, if so, I advise them of the process they should follow. If requested, I assist in the writing of letters to potentially affected staff; attend consultation meetings and ensure the process is conducted efficiently and in compliance with the employer’s contractual obligations and its obligations of good faith.

I advise employees whether they have grounds to challenge a threatened redundancy situation and, if so, how they might go about it. If requested, I represent the employee at consultation meetings; ensure that the employer complies with its obligations and, if the redundancy is confirmed, I am often asked to negotiate an exit arrangement or package.

Employment agreements - Workplace Law

I keep their agreements and policies on my precedent system so I can easily answer any question they have as circumstances arise or I can easily update the agreement or policy if the law or requirements change. I act as bargaining agent for employers and unions in the bargaining of collective employment agreements. I write employment agreements and policies for employers, tailored to meet their specific requirements.

Personal Grievances and Disputes - Workplace Law

If mediation fails to resolve the issues between the parties, either of them can file proceedings in the Employment Relations Authority. I represent employers who have received notice from an employee alleging a dispute or personal grievance. The Employment Relations Act requires that, in virtually every case, the parties should attend mediation.
