Your Workplace Rights

You are afforded protection under various Australian Equal Opportunity and Anti-Discrimination acts.  This is a complicated area of law.  Many people do not realize that they may have a claim, or do not understand what victimisation means under the relevant legislation.  We can advise you, help you prepare a statement, gather evidence and represent you in the relevant Commission to make sure that your voice is heard.

You are entitled to justice and a fair go, under no circumstances do you have to suffer or put up with discrimination in the workplace and other life circumstances. Why should you suffer because of your employer, or their failure to act on your complaints? Many people do not realize that they may be eligible or just not sure as to the merits of their claim.  Call now to have a confidential discussion regarding your situation.

We will make sure to stand up for your rights.  Call us today!
