As Australia’s industrial relations system enters a new regime, an informed approach to the management of industrial relations (IR) and human resources (HR) is critical. We provide advice across all areas of employment law including award employees, labour hire and contractors, senior management and executive employment. We provide our clients with tailored advice and training to ensure compliance with minimum standards in relation to bargaining and agreement making, modernised awards, the expanding area of workplace rights and interaction with industrial organisations.

Our IR and HR lawyers are available 24 hours/7 days a week to provide legal advice. The most common need for this service arises in relation to potential or actual industrial action, requiring immediate access to witnesses in order to prepare statements, relevant documentation and instructions for urgent hearings. This need may also arise in cases involving allegations of serious employee misconduct including assault, fraud, bullying, alcohol or drug use, or damage to property.
