It may be a cliche but it is still the truth – the most important part of a business is … people.
The right people in the right place who are well managed and informed are a business asset. They effectively are the business ambassadors who through their skill and dedication can help grow and positively contribute to a successful business.
Unfortunately that is not always the case and sometimes disputes in the workplace can occur. These can be difficult to deal with – there are always two sides to each dispute and a vested interest by both parties. Employment and Industrial law and especially the Fair Work Act are likely unfamiliar territory to the parties involved and fair resolution can seem a difficult, tedious and sometimes unattainable goal.
Employing a solicitor who understands the workplace and the laws that govern it can help effectively resolve these disputes. Most often disputes do not end up in court – they are usually resolved through discreet, knowledgeable negotiation and mediation.
