Australia has some of the world’s most complex industrial and employee relations legislation.

In 2015, nearly 18,000 claims for unfair dismissal were made. This was the highest number of unfair dismissal claims ever recorded.

The Fair Work Act is lengthy, complex and confusing. As relatively recent legislation precedents are regularly set as the legislation is tested in court, which impacts our understanding of the act.

This piece of legislation was designed to protect employees against genuinely unfair dismissals but is being widely abused and is hugely stacked against the employer.

Cornerstone can make sure you and your business are compliant with the requirements of the act and minimise your exposure to these spurious claims.

With many years of local Western Australian experience across a host of industries we will guide you around the act and tell you what you need to know.
