Employment & industrial relations

A perennial debate for business owners is how best to balance the needs of their valuable employees with operational demands.

Being an employer is a double-edged sword. When a team is focused and working in accord, it seems easy to get the job done. On the other side – disputes, infighting, and litigation can be morale sapping, expensive and even reputation destroying.


An employee’s role is more than just a contract, and success at work influences an employee’s health, wealth and happiness – as well as the success of the employer. Considering that we all spend more time at work than eating, housework and leisure combined, it is not surprising that things can and do go wrong, personalities collide and careers are impacted.

At Redchip we understand that, whether you are an employer or a worker, a pragmatic approach is best when dealing with employment and industrial relations issues.

Redchip’s Litigation team navigates the complex matrix of State and Federal laws, contracts, awards and enterprise agreements. We provide practical advice in a language that you can understand, to reduce the risk or severity of employment battles.
