Main Content Anchor

The Employment Law Service is a program within Caxton's Human Rights and Civil Law Practice.

Who can the Employment Law Service help?

The Employment Law Service can help if you are earning less than $80, 000 or, if dismissed, you were earning less than $80,000 prior to your dismissal.

How can the Employment Law Service help me?

The Employment Law Service can assist if you are seeking legal advice because you have been:

  • sacked or lost your job and would like advice about a dismissal claim
  • bullied at work
  • sexually harassed at work
  • discriminated against at work.

Caxton may be able to help if you are not sure if you are a contractor or an employee or you suspect you are a sham contractor. The service will cease assisting if it becomes clear that you are conducting a business (as a genuine contractor).

The Employment Law Service can't help with
  • contracts, either at the outset of employment or during employment
  • unpaid wages and entitlements disputes
  • second opinions
  • work cover and other injury-related matters.
Who else can help?

Union members should seek assistance from their Union whenever possible.

For wages and entitlements disputes: see Fair Work Ombudsman.

Caxton has an Employment Law Referral List on their Referral Lists page.
