"The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place"
George Bernard Shaw
One of the most important but underestimated aspects of a good employment relationship is strong open communication. In our experience, failure to communicate promptly and appropriately with employees is one of the major reasons why employees decide to litigate employment disputes.
With this in mind, we actively help employers with their communications with employees, whether that be in relation to performance, redundancies, grievances or misconduct.
"One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognise a problem before it becomes an emergency"
Arnold H. Glasow
Employers look to their legal adviser to help minimise and manage risk. We do this by providing our clients with advice before changes are implemented, as well as during the change management processes. Our experience working with state and federal regulators means that we are well placed to assist our clients with compliance. We can also draft or review employment contracts and documentation to ensure that the risk of disputes is minimised.
