You only have to open the newspaper to realise that this area is growing in litigation and complexity. Unfair dismissal, discrimination, unwanted sexual advances, and workplace bullying are all areas receiving greater attention. Employees are far more aware of their rights than ever before.
This does not however mean that an employer ‘s hands are tied. Often the problems arise because of the way the employer has handled the problem. At the Qld Law Group, our experience shows getting sound advice before taking steps against a staff member and having good published policies can go a long way to preventing a problem occurring and if the matter goes to litigation can mitigate the costs to the employer.
