Employment law services

Disputes in the workplace can become difficult and unpleasant. That’s why so many people, particularly those in senior and executive positions, allow things to continue for so long. Invariably, however, you realise that the situation cannot be resolved without legal advice. That’s where we can help you.

Sometimes retaining a lawyer is the only way to successfully resolve a contractual dispute or employment issue. We understand that. We also understand that employment law matters need to be handled with both determination and discretion. Our executive employment team are ideally placed to protect your professional reputation and ensure your present and future financial stability. At Maurice Blackburn we deliver strategic advice and realistic, achievable solutions for your individual concerns.

Retaining a lawyer does not necessarily mean going to court. In a large proportion of cases Maurice Blackburn is able to convince the other party to negotiate a swift settlement.  Our employment law division, headed by high-profile legal expert Josh Bornstein, is recognised nationally as Australia’s leading employment law practice.  No matter what your situation, you can be confident that Maurice Blackburn can provide a resolution.

Maurice Blackburn’s employment lawyers have a proven track record in providing advice and representation on a wide range of complex legal issues, from negotiating the terms of employment contracts, to enforcing bonus schemes and discretionary entitlements.

In the majority of cases, our highly experienced employment lawyers are able to negotiate discreetly to obtain a financial settlement and other favourable outcomes such as reinstatement or recognition of benefits and entitlements.
