Aitken Legal is constantly evolving and growing in order to satisfy the needs of our clients. Employment Law has become a very specialised area of law and the team at Aitken Legal ensure they are up to date with the latest changes in legislation and recent decisions of relevant courts and tribunals.
Employment Law covers a broad spectrum of laws and regulations including contracts of employment, enterprise agreement, employee entitlements, performance management, termination, discrimination, workplace health and safety, redundancies, transmission of business and much more.
Due to the complexities with interpreting the legislation and industrial instruments governing employee rights and entitlements, Employment Law has become a very specialised area of the law.
The team of Lawyers at Aitken Legal appreciate this and devote their entire practice to employment and workplace relations law ensuring we can always provide our clients with accurate and up to date advice.
Aitken Legal also keeps our clients well informed through our e-newsletter, the Employment Update, as well as through workshops and conferences.
There are no other firms on the Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast or Toowoomba as dedicated as Aitken Legal in this way.
