Employment Relations

Restructuring of the economy, innovation in business models, ongoing changes to employment legislation and increased public interest in workforce matters have combined to emphasise the importance of employment law to every organisation's success.

To help our clients navigate through this increasingly complex landscape, Piper Alderman has a dedicated team of employment lawyers who appreciate that in today's competitive environment employers must balance the opportunities available with meeting obligations and legislative restrictions.

We act predominantly for employers, rather than unions or employees, and offer a full range of workplace and industrial relations, equal opportunity, work health and safety and employment law services across Australia. Our team is committed to developing partnerships with our clients to ensure issues are managed properly and exposure to risk is minimised.

We understand that effective management of employment and industrial issues, including discrimination, contractual, WHS and privacy matters, enhances productivity and reduces disputes.
