Employment Law

As an employee you have a right to work in a safe environment and your employer has an obligation to ensure that their employees can work comfortably.

In Australia, there are three (3) main sources of employment law:

  • legislation;
  • industrial instruments; and
  • case law.

Johnstone Crouse Lawyers’ employment law services include:


Unfair dismissal is when an employee is dismissed in a harsh, unjust or unreasonable manner.

If you believe your dismissal has been harsh, unjust or unreasonable, you can make an application to the Fair Work Commission within 21 days of the dismissal.

Due to the limitation period, it is important for you to obtain legal advice as soon as practicable. Johnstone Crouse Lawyers will ensure that your application is filed without delay.

At Johnstone Crouse Lawyers we understand the importance of working in a safe environment without being discriminated and harassed by your employer.
