Employment & Workplace Discrimination Lawyer

“Employment and discrimination law govern the employer-employee relationship, ensuring fairness and equal opportunities at work. It covers hiring, working conditions, wages, promotions, and termination. It also addresses workplace discrimination based on factors like race, gender, age, religion, disability, or sexual orientation. The process involves filing complaints, mediation, arbitration, or litigation.”

Brisbane Employment Lawyers Specialising in Workplace Discrimination

Many employment law matters are affected by and layered with discrimination. Employers must provide a workplace free from harassment and discrimination in Australia, but – unfortunately – this is not always the case. Hiring an employment lawyer in Brisbane can make filing an unfair dismissal case easier. We understand all the legal jargon and requirements to ensure you get what you need from the proceedings.

Understanding your rights

What are my Employer's Obligations?

Employers are responsible for taking proactive steps towards minimising, preventing, and resolving incidents of harassment and discrimination in the workplace.

The Queensland Anti-Discrimination Act of 1991 (QLD) prohibits discrimination. Workplace discrimination can be remedied through the Australia Human Rights Commission or The Fair Work Act 2009 (CTH).

Employment and Discrimination Law FAQ

We receive many questions about legal matters, and we have done our best to answer some of them below. Please note that this FAQ cannot be considered legitimate legal advice. Contact our discrimination lawyer in Brisbane for more information about your problem.

Unfair dismissal is when an employee has had their employment unfairly terminated by the employer or if the employee had no choice but to resign due to employer behaviour, actions, or conduct. 

An employee is considered unfairly dismissed when the Fair Work Commission finds that the following conditions existed:

  • Dismissal of the employee.
  • The termination was harsh, unjust, or unreasonable.
  • There was no case of genuine redundancy.
  • The employee dismissal did not adhere to the Small Business Fair Dismissal Code if the employer runs a small business.

There are usually two outcomes for unfair dismissal applications. These are either compensation or reinstatement. The maximum amount of remuneration payable is limited to six months of your salary; however, this is usually only awarded in more severe cases.

Once reinstated, you may be eligible to receive back pay for the unemployment period resulting from the firing.

Contact AKS Law if you experience discrimination in the workplace or an untenable work environment that may lead to you losing your job. Our employment lawyer in Brisbane will reach out and set up a meeting.
