DW Fox Tucker Lawyers offers a broad, comprehensive range of general commercial services complemented by a suite of expert specialist services for clients in specific key industries and niche market sectors, including workers compensation and employment law.
Workers compensation is an integral part of every Australian business, and with every employer having to comply with the state, territory or Commonwealth legislation, the confusing legal aspects of workers compensation can be challenging to navigate. Our workplace team supports clients by providing responsive and pragmatic advice to assist with claim reviews, compliance advice, appeals, fraud investigations, prosecutions and a raft of other services associated with workers compensation law. We help some of the largest employers in Australia, across many industries, to defend and manage claims in the Employment Tribunal and Superior Courts.
In addition to workers compensation advice, our workplace team has a proven track record delivering positive solutions to employers concerning other complex workplace issues and disputes. We work with our clients to breakdown the complexities of the issue and then tailor an approach designed to meet their specific set of circumstances. Our lawyers provide expert advice on enterprise bargaining agreements, good faith bargaining obligations, strategic planning, responses to collective workplace and right of entry disputes, compliance obligations and employment policies and procedures. We also represent PCBUs for SafeWork SA investigations and provide advice in respect of Work Health and Safety Act compliance.
While our specialists' key focus is to support and defend our clients, while minimising costs, we also invest time to inform clients about relevant aspects of law and their application. Clients need the knowledge to develop strategies that will create better systems, protocols and policies to improve efficiencies and minimise the financial risk of workplace related legal issues.
