Our Employment
Law Services

Have you been unfairly dismissed from your employment? You may have a case under the Fair Work Act, which states that you must be given a valid reason and afforded procedural fairness before termination.

If you’ve been treated adversely in the workplace because you exercised a workplace right, were temporarily absent due to illness or have been discriminated against, our employment lawyers are here to assist.

Discrimination occurs when you are treated less favourably in the workplace than another employee, just because you have a particular attribute such as age, gender, marital status or ethnicity. This is a breach of State and Federal discrimination laws.

Bullying and harassment includes, but is not limited to, receiving repeated and unwanted acts by someone else that are intimidating or hurtful, or unwanted advances of a sexual nature. 

When an employee’s position is made redundant due to financial difficulties or company restructure, it is important to seek legal advice. Our employment lawyers can lead you through the process to ensure that you get what you deserve and aren’t misinformed. 

There’s nothing worse than being underpaid. An employee must be paid what they are entitled to, under the applicable Modern Award, the Enterprise Agreement, or their Employment Contract.

Employment Law and Workplace Relations

Are you in the midst of an employment situation where you need to understand your legal rights?

At Rubix Legal, we observe many cases of unjust treatment of employees in the workplace. It’s not uncommon for employees experiencing workplace discrimination or unfair dismissal, to lose sleep, have anxiety and feel totally lost as to what to do.

Perhaps you’re returning to work from maternity leave and have discovered that your role has changed without your knowledge. Perhaps you’ve been demoted, or informed that you are no longer needed and your job is redundant.

If you’ve been injured and are struggling to understand your workplace rights, we can assist. Rehabilitation can be an extremely challenging and emotional time, especially if you’re experiencing financial hardship and are not getting the support you should from your employer.

That’s why at Rubix Legal, we focus exclusively on assisting employees with legal matters.

We understand that experiencing a workplace issue such as unfair dismissal, redundancy, bullying and harassment or underpayment of wages can leave you in a state of confusion and despair.

However with the right information, you can regain your confidence and move forward knowing that you’ve done everything you can to protect what you’ve worked so hard to establish – your career.
