SWS Lawyers regularly advises employers in relation to all aspects of employment law, assisting our clients to effectively manage their employees and workplace. We routinely provide advice in relation to contract preparation and negotiation, the management of employees (including performance management and termination of employment) and we regularly act on behalf of employers when disputes arise.

Our team understands the needs of our clients for prompt and practical solution-based advice to assist with the effective management of their workforce. Where disputes arise our team has experience in all the relevant courts and tribunals including the Fair Work Commission, the Federal Court of Australia, the Federal Circuit Court, the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board and the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Our experience includes:

  • Acting on behalf of an employer in relation to misappropriation of funds by an employee in excess of $1m.
  • Acting on behalf of an employer in relation to a bullying claim in the Fair Work Commission involving extensive cross organisation allegations.
  • Regularly advising employers in relation to employee restraint matters.
  • Advising an employer in relation to the implementation of an enterprise agreement involving interstate employees.
  • Regularly acting for and advising employers in relation to the allegations involving unfair dismissal, general protection claims and discrimination allegations.

Their approach is always professional and delivered at a standard comparable to a capital city law firm. It is the clear strategic direction that has always impressed me about the SWS team.
