Reviewing Employment Contracts
If you are starting or finishing a job you may need some help understanding your rights and obligations under an employment contract?
We have a dedicated Employment Law team who can assist you by reviewing and advising you on your employment contract either before you start a new job or when you are finishing a job.
Employee or Contractor?
Establishing whether or not you are an employee or a contractor is extremely important in order to ensure you are receiving all of your entitlements from your employer. Employees have entitlements such as annual leave and superannuation that contractors don’t, and if you are a contractor and it is found in the future that you’re actually an employee, you may be entitled to back payment of the entitlements that you were not originally paid.
