Employment & Discrimination Lawyers
Work is an obligation that many of us enjoy and may rely upon for our income in order to support ourselves and our families. However, it can be more of a ordeal than it has to be if you are experiencing a hostile environment.
If you have been subjected to discrimination because of:
- sexual preference,
- gender identity
- or age,
then your employer may have broken Queensland state and federal employment laws and you may have the right to claim compensation. The discrimination need not have occurred at work. There are also special anti-bullying laws that apply to the work environment.
Workers – factory workers, nurses, hospitality workers, fitters, office workers, anyone – may have rights to compensation or reinstatement following a termination of their employment contract.
Despite the #MeToo movement, there is still too much sexual harassment occurring in the work place. We can handle these cases with a personal and sensitive touch so that you can put behind you the trauma of any events as quickly as possible, while making sure you receive just compensation.
Time limits for employment claims
Please note that time limits apply ! If you feel that you have a compensation claim for discrimination or bullying, or that you have been harshly treated by a termination of your employment, then you should seek legal advice promptly from solicitors.
Many of these types of compensation claims are paid out by insurance cover that the employer will carry.
