Workplace Advice and Support

- termination of employment;
- review of individual common law employment contracts;
- conditions of employment;
- disciplinary issues/performance management;
- workplace bullying and harassment;
- market rates salary information;
- award rates of pay;
- independent contractors – review of contracts for service;
- restrictive covenants; and
- intellectual property.
Our team has a strong track record when it comes to resolving disputes. If you or anyone you know needs employment advice or help, join APEA now
for confidential and expert support.

Employment Contact Review
Before you sign a new employment contract, take advantage of your membership and consult with our free employment contract review service. One of our experts will check the minimums and explain the implications of all the clauses and conditions to you. Knowing exactly what your contract does and doesn’t contain gives you peace of mind…before you sign.
Your Rights, Wages and Conditions
In Australia, every employee is entitled to minimum conditions of employment. Industry awards, enterprise agreements and common law contracts also form legally enforceable terms and conditions of employment over and above the National Employment Standard’s
requirements. We are available to explain what this means for your individual employment contract.
The following fact sheets provide an overview of what your rights and obligations at work are, and how the law protects your legal minimum terms and conditions.
These fact sheets are offered for information only and should not be considered as legal advice in any circumstances.
