We Can Help!

All employees regardless of who they work for, or the size of the company, have rights to the unfair / unlawful dismissal laws. There are rules as to who qualify's, please refer to the unfair dismissal page for further details.

Regardless of the size of the company you can still bring a claim if you have been sacked for a discriminatory reason. (check on our Discrimination & Harassment page for a list).

There is alot of confusion how these industrial relations laws and the Fair Work Australia Act will work, if you have been sacked, regardless of the size of the employer, regardless of the circumstances, call us today and we'll discuss the matter.

The dispute provisions in the Fair Work Australia Act are wide ranging and alot more user friendly than they used to be.If you are being harrassed, discriminated against or feel your emplyement contract has been breached, you may be able to lodge a industrial relations dispute.

There is alot of confusion in the workplace. There are various other prospects against employers, including deceptive and misleading conduct, reasonable notice claims (up to nine months pay depending on your circumstances), breach of contract and sexual harassment claims under state OH&S laws. (We will refer you to the appropriate law firm or authority if required).

We have run many successful claims against some of the largest companies in Australia, both publicly listed and private as non-lawyer advocates.

Justice and fairness applies equally to every body

If you think that "justice" has anything to do with right or wrong or fairness you are sadly mistaken, Justice is concerned only with enforcing the law and has little to do with the average person's concept of fairness.Most employers treat their workforce fairly, however some Employers don't care about you, or your family. Their business is about making money, they have no respect for the industrial relations and discrimination laws and nothing else matters other than them. Don't be convinced you have no rights, or you cannot win, you can!, don't be mistreated or unfairly sacked and let the employer get away with it. Call today!!

No win-no fee, our view

A Whole New Approach takes on many industrial relations and discrimination cases on a no win-no fee basis. This saves people money which is particularly important when they have lost their job or are experiencing issues in the workplace.

We approach your case with a social justice agenda; if we feel you have an very arguable case we will often take on your claim on a no win, no fee basis so that you can retain your money should you be unsuccessful in your claim. If you feel you have been treated unfairly by your employer, do not let your financial situation stop you from seeking help or justice. Everyone should have access industrial relations and discrimination laws to achieving justice in the workplace, especially when they have a genuine unfair dismissal, unlawful dismissal or discrimination claim.

If we take on your industrial relations or discrimination claim on a no win, no fee basis, we carry the risk of your claim. We believe in your case, and are willing to shoulder the risk of losing for you. Should we win your case, we take an agreed percentage of the settlement, and you keep the rest. This allows clients who are suffering financial hardship to have access to justice. If however, you are in a financial position to pay fees, but are unwilling to pay, it begs the question: If you don't believe in your own case, why should we? If you can afford to pay fees but don't want to, does that mean you don't believe your case will win?

In essence, A Whole New Approach takes on a large proportion of cases on a no win-no fee basis, however this is decided on a case-by-case basis.

History Australian Capital Territory

Industrial relations law in the Australian Capital Territory has undergone significant transformation in the past few years. In 2006, the Workplace Relations Amendment (Work Choices) Act 2006 commenced, and the rights and responsibilities of corporations that employed staff in the Australian Capital Territory became regulated under a federal system. The Australian Labour Party’s succession into federal Government in 2007 marked the beginning of the dismantling of the Work Choices scheme, despite the Act being held a constitutionally valid exercise of federal Parliament power by the High Court in 2006.

The Fair Work Act 2009 came into effect on the 1st of July 2009. Industrial relations now operate under a national system, and Fair Work Australia is now responsible for matters such as the National Employment Standards (NES), minimum wage orders and unfair dismissals.

The ACT Human Rights Commission was established in 2005 to promote human rights by administering the Discrimination Act 1991, Human Rights Act 2004 and the Human Rights Commission Act 2005. The ACT is the first state in Australia to recognise civil and political rights explicitly through legislation
