On occasion, a business may be subjected to an unfair dismissal claim. It is important to note that many unfair dismissal claims are resolved through negotiation. In rare occasions, court action may be required. Although Queensland Law Practice has represented many employers before Industrial Relations Commissions, Ant-Discrimination Tribunals, Chief Industrial Magistrate’s Court and Federal Court of Australia, it is best practice to avoid these often costly and drawn out matters. Our team can guide you through the entire process of disciplinary measures, conducting dispute resolution techniques and if need be finalisation of the court litigation process.
Unlawful discrimination is the less favorable treatment of a person based on attributes such as race, gender, religion and age to name only a few. It can occur in the workplace, in the provision of services to a person and even during the recruitment process.
