Looking to Handle an Employment Dispute?

Despite your best endeavours, your business or organisation may find itself involved in a dispute with an employee or former employee. 

Whether it is an unfair dismissal application, a discrimination complaint, a dispute about employment entitlements, a breach of contract claim or a general protection application, it is important to resolve the problem in a timely manner and minimise disruption to your business.

Whatever the issue, when an employment dispute arises, it represents a legal, financial and reputational risk to your business or organisation. And like any other risk in practising business, it needs to be carefully mitigated and managed.
