Employee Management

While it may be well-understood by business operators that managing staff and performance should be a continuous activity for all employees, the failure to properly implement performance management systems often means it is not adopted in practice until an issue arises.

Anderson Legal can assist employers to implement performance management systems to manage staff and performance, as well as to respond to employee underperformance and other common employee-related issues in the workplace, such as illness and injury.

Employee Management Issues
  • Managing Illness & Injury
  • Managing Underperformance
  • Managing Workplace Bullying Claims
  • Managing Workplace Grievances
  • Managing Workplace Investigations
  • Managing Workplace Misconduct

Disciplinary Action & Termination

Any business or organisation should have workplace disciplinary processes to ensure that when disciplinary action is contemplated, there are systems or procedures in place to ensure legal, commercial and reputational risks are managed. Failure to follow the law when dealing with disciplinary issues can give rise to successful claims against employers, in addition to other less obvious consequences.

As an employment lawyer for employers, Anderson Legal has the expertise to assist you in dealing with issues or disputes surrounding disciplinary action and dismissal. Contact this firm for advice and representation.

Discipline & Termination Issues
  • Dismissal Code for Small Business
  • Drafting Show Cause Letters
  • Drafting Warning Letters
  • Employer Redundancy Obligations
  • Negotiated End to Employment
  • Responding to Unfair Dismissal Claims

Post-Employment Issues

Even if the employment of an employee comes to an end, there may still be rights and responsibilities that survive the termination of the employment relationship. It is common for employment contracts to impose confidentiality obligations and restraints on trade and competition, among others, which may only arise upon or, endure after, the cessation of employment. Such issues may also be the subject of negotiations.

Given the commercial significance post-employment issues can have for a business, it is important for employers facing issues of this kind to obtain early and authoritative advice and representation.

Post-Employment Issues
  • Confidentiality Requirements
  • Employee Record Requirements
  • Intellectual Property
  • Non-Disparagement Requirements
  • Restraint of Trade Requirements
  • Superannuation & Tax Records

Responding to Unfair Written Warnings at WorkIn Australia, employers may issue a written warning to ensure procedural fairness. The failure to give employees a chance to fix underperformance or some misconduct can see successful unfair dismissal claims made against employers. An unfair written warning may afford no protection against an unfair dismissal claim.Viewdisciplinary-processes employment-lawwritten-warnings
Responding to a Workplace Investigation into Bullying ComplaintsFacing a workplace investigation into a workplace bullying complaint can leave people feeling stressed, uncertain and isolated. Getting informed about how you may respond to a workplace bullying complaint, as well as your rights, responsibilities and options is essential for anybody facing an issue of this kind.Viewemployment-lawworkplace-bullying workplace-investigations
Responding to a Show Cause LetterA show cause letter is meant to provide an employee with an opportunity to explain (show cause) why they should not face disciplinary action within the workplace. The failure to give employees a chance to 'show cause' why the disciplinary action is unjustified can see decisions overturned or compensation awarded.Viewdisciplinary-processes employment-lawshow-cause-letters
Responding to a Workplace Investigation into Sexual HarassmentSexual harassment complaints often result in formal workplace investigations. Generally, Australian laws define sexual harassment as involving (1) unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature; (2) the conduct leaves the person feeling offended, humiliated or intimidated; and, (3) the reaction of the person is reasonable in the circumstances.Viewemployment-lawsexual-harassment workplace-investigations
Responding to False Bullying Allegations at WorkMany people who face bullying complaints at work are managers in one form or another. However described, executives, managers, or small business owners all have as part of their role the task of managing the conduct and performance of others. It is not uncommon for performance management issues to lead to allegations of bullying.Viewemployment-law workplace-bullyingfalse-allegations
Responding to False Sexual Harassment Allegations at WorkAnybody who believes they are subject to false or wrongful sexual harassment allegations should get urgent legal advice due to the potential consequences of such claims. Employers may be vicariously liable for sexual harassment that occurs in a workplace unless they have taken "all reasonable steps" to prevent it.Viewemployment-law sexual-harassmentfalse-allegations

Can We Help?

It costs nothing but time to see if we are the right firm for your case. Contact us to see if this firm can assist you.

This firm offers a ‘free consultation’. The reason is simple – it shouldn’t cost anything for a person to pick up the phone and understand if a particular law firm can help them or not. Anderson Legal takes the time necessary to understand the issues and to determine if we are in a real position to provide the standard of advice and representation you are entitled to expect.

Our Clients

Our clients make our practice. They are the ones we worry about each day, and to whom we owe a great obligation.

Our clients often have sought out Anderson Legal because they have been told something about expertise and experience. They put their faith and trust in the work of this firm. Professional reputation follows reality and not the other way around. Andrew Anderson, Legal Director, offers our clients a proven track record of success in complex and difficult cases across all court levels, including multiple appeals before the High Court of Australia.

Cost Comparisons

Comparing lawyers is not just a question of price, but value. Backed by the experience of successful courtroom advocacy across Australia, this firm offers significant value to its clients beyond price.
It is notoriously difficult to compare lawyers. Past courtroom experience and outcomes achieved do provide some basis for comparison. Andrew Anderson has an enviable record of success in contested hearings, trials and appeals.

If you are an employer seeking an employment lawyer, this firm is committed to providing premium legal services at competitive rates.

As a lawyer who has achieved significant outcomes in a variety of contexts – as a Principal Crown Prosecutor, as a barrister, and as a law firm principal – Andrew Anderson brings a different level of experience to his advice and representation as compared to most solicitors. While he routinely works with leading Queens Counsel and other specialist barristers in complex cases, his significant experience in litigating and resolving disputes in cases throughout Australia means his clients have genuine expertise available from the start.

This firm may use several fee options, either exclusively or at various stages. The purpose is to make legal fees predictable, understandable, and transparent. Options include ‘fixed fee’ agreements, ‘capped’ legal costs, and agreements where the costs are calculated on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.

Entering into costs agreements that are understandable, and transparent allows this firm to remain focused on the outcomes our clients seek.

Our Referrals

If, unfortunately, we cannot provide you advice or representation, we will probably know who can.

The areas of law this practice handles are deliberately narrow and deep. Our deep focus on select areas of law allows this firm to handle some of the most complex and challenging cases that come before the courts.

It is not uncommon for this firm to receive enquiries we know will be better handled by others. In the interests of maintaining the highest standards, there are also occasions when cases we would otherwise welcome are declined to focus on existing clients’ needs. In such instances, we will try to identify who may be in a position to assist you.
