Employ­ment, Work­place Health and Safety

I am a lawyer spe­cial­is­ing in employ­ment and work­place rela­tions. I have prac­ticed in both large and bou­tique firms, work­ing with clients from a range of back­grounds includ­ing employ­er asso­ci­a­tions, multi­na­tion­al cor­po­ra­tions and SME busi­ness­es. I advise on all stages of the employ­ment life­cy­cle, and have par­tic­u­lar expe­ri­ence in issues regard­ing the engage­ment of employ­ees, per­for­mance man­age­ment, work health and safe­ty, work­place inves­ti­ga­tions, dis­putes and ter­mi­na­tion of employment.

For part of my career I worked as a Senior Writer for a glob­al legal pub­lish­er, Thom­son Reuters, in the area of employ­ment and indus­tri­al rela­tions law. I have also pre­sent­ed sem­i­nars on devel­op­ments in the employ­ment and indus­tri­al law land­scape, pro­vid­ing prac­ti­cal guid­ance on how to nav­i­gate this con­stant­ly evolv­ing area.
