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.
