Resolving workplace disputes

Many workers have access to formal dispute resolution procedures in their workplace. Turner Freeman can provide clear, confidential advice to ensure that you are in the best position possible.

At Turner Freeman, we serve our client’s interests in relation to their employment by providing clear advice on the best course of action to deal with any specific problem. Often this advice will be against the immediate commencement of legal proceedings, or even formal representation in the dispute by lawyers.

Settlement process

Instead we will often look to internal conflict resolution processes and grievance procedures, as well as dispute settlement processes under awards and agreements. Where possible, it is important that a workplace problem does not inevitably lead to the end of the employment. Sensible advice will often not be to commence legal proceedings.

These commercial dispute settlement procedures are sometimes required before legal steps can be taken.

Turner Freeman is able to provide discrete pragmatic advice throughout the conduct of dispute procedures. This advice can include defending allegations of misconduct so as to avoid the possibility of termination, or assisting in finding sensible outcomes to clashes between work colleagues.
