Industrial Lawyers Directory
Industrial law is the body of law which governs how businesses or companies should treat their employees, representatives and the government. Under this law, women are given equal opportunity in the workplace. Likewise, employees are given security to safety and welfare. This law covers many acts and enforcement may differ in each of the Australian States and territories. At any rate, employees having problems in the workplace can always fight for their rights and seek the assistance of industrial lawyers.
Discrimination sometimes happens in the workplace and at times, some employees may not be given what is due them. There are employees who are underpaid and who are not treated well by the companies that they are working in. Some employees are also not given the proper medical benefits and there are others who are fired under doubtful circumstances. Any employee who are not treated with equality and are not given the appropriate benefits due them can file claims in court with the help of industrial lawyers.
Industrial lawyers have specialized knowledge on the different areas of the industrial law. They are very familiar with the different acts that are covered under the industrial law, including the Occupational Health and Safety Act 1991, Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act 1999, Workplace Relations Act 1996, Discrimination Act 1991 and Industrial Relations Act 1996 and many others.
Industrial lawyers can help employees fight for their rights and get what is due them. In instances where an employee has been discriminated in the workplace or when the company fails to provide the necessary benefits or perhaps the company has not paid an employee the appropriate salary amount, the situation can be brought in court. Industrial lawyers can represent the employee in court litigations and strive to win the case.
