Employment

Crescent Lawyers specialise in Employment matters and provide high quality and cost-effective advice and representation to both employees and employers.

We represent clients in both the Fair Work Commission and South Australian Employment Tribunal.

We provide advice and representation in the following areas:

  • Unfair Dismissal where it is alleged the dismissal was harsh, unjust or unreasonable
  • Employment contracts including advice on or preparing employment contracts
  • Redundancies including advice on whether a redundancy is genuine, applying for a redundancy or general rights and options
  • Underpayment of wages where it is alleged one has been underpaid or not paid for the work performed
  • Adverse Action and Unlawful Termination where action is taken against a worker or where a worker is sacked for temporary absence as a result of an injury or illness, asserting a workplace right or workplace discrimination such as on the grounds of race, colour, religion, age, sex, physical or mental disability, pregnancy, political opinion etc.
  • Bullying & Harassment
  • Disciplinary proceedings, performance review meetings, investigations or conciliation

It is important to keep in mind that the time limit to lodge applications for dismissal disputes is 21 days after the dismissal takes effect. It is therefore important to seek advice well before that time limit.

For all enquiries about Employment matters please contact the Principal Lawyer Belal Moraby on 8312 7055.
