Industrial Relations

We deal with Industrial Relations Commission matters, defending unfair dismissal claims, Worksafe prosecutions (click here), claims for breaches of contracts of employment (click here), breaches of restraint of trade clauses (click here), theft of company information (click here) and all other industrial matters.  For further information click here.


Our rates and fixed prices are lower than the prices charged by many Perth Commercial law firms because we own our offices so we don't pay the exorbitant St George's Tce rent that many commercial law firms do.
