Frequently Asked Questions About Employment Lawyers

Here are some commonly asked questions from employers:

An employment lawyer can charge on an hourly rate, fixed-fees or a retainer. An hourly rate can be quite expensive, ranging from $300 to $600 per hour, depending on the experience of the lawyer and the complexity of the matter. At LegalVision, we charge fixed-fees – this means you know the cost of your legal bill upfront. Our fixed-fees range from as low as $250 per project.

An employment lawyer can advise employers, employees, contractors and HR managers with all aspects of employment law. Employment lawyers will have an in-depth understanding of Australia’s employment law framework, including the Fair Work Act and relevant industry awards. Employment solicitors can also advise on employment rights for employers and employees.

An employer is faced with employment law issues on a daily basis – from onboarding new employees, to dealing with performance management issues. Generally, most employment matters can be handled without the need of an employment law specialist. However, in situations where employee matters escalate, an employment lawyer may be necessary to resolve any issues before they go to a tribunal or court.

An online search is a good way to start in identifying an employment lawyer suitable to handle your enquiry. Some employment lawyers specialise in particular industries (such as hospitality or entertainment), while others may have experience dealing with particular matters (e.g. unfair dismissals). To find a good employment lawyer, look at their awards, existing clients and testimonials.
