We can advise Employers in relation to:
Discriminatory behaviour can completely undermine the working environment and result in expensive legal proceedings.
If your organisation has been accused of discriminatory conduct, or better still if you suspect it might be occurring in your workplace and/or amongst your staff, ACT QUICKLY!
Quite often staff don’t even realise that their behaviour could be considered discriminatory. We can assist your organisation to develop policies and procedures in relation to the prevention of discrimination.
Harassment and Bullying
Similarly, often people don’t mean their behaviour to be bullying or harassing. Left unchecked though, a situation where an employee perceives they are being bullied or harassed, rightly or wrongly, can quickly escalate into a worker’s compensation claim or claim for discrimination.
We can offer you a cost effective service whereby we can mediate, or develop policies and guidelines, offer training, or just talk to your staff. The aim is to stop it before it gets out of hand.
There should be no surprises when it comes to legal costs.For all matters if we can provide an estimate as to the cost of assisting you as you instruct, as a whole we will do so. If that is not possible we will tell you why, and we will provide our best initial estimate for the first stage of the matter, based on the information available to us at that time.
