Employment Lawyers Brisbane

Helping Brisbane workers for over 75 years who have suffered unfair dismissal, discrimination, bullying and harassment, wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and disputes over wages and entitlements.

At Attwood Marshall Lawyers, our Brisbane employment law experts specialise in helping employees and workers resolve employment disputes.

We are experienced in defending clients in a range of employment law matters, including:

  • Unfair dismissal
  • Harassment
  • Discrimination
  • Bullying
  • Improper treatment
  • Assault
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Unfair disciplinary proceedings
  • Withholding of wages and/or entitlements

We understand that employees are often at a disadvantage when it comes to disputes with their employer. Employers have extra funds, human resources staff and procedures to lean on, and access to their own lawyers to help protect them from action being brought against them.

Our Brisbane Employment Lawyers act for employees across all industries and will advocate for your rights. If you have been wrongly dismissed or mistreated at work, our team can assist you.

Attwood Marshall Lawyers offer an initial phone call or face-to-face consultation for a modest fee. To determine if you have a viable claim for compensation, we will ask you a series of questions. Our Brisbane lawyers will assess your claim, listen to your instructions, and provide you with advice as to your claim and the steps you should take

If you instruct us to act on the claim, we will provide you with estimated costs at that time.

To speak with our expert workplace lawyers and to get your employment law claim underway, contact Attwood Marshall Lawyers on 1800 621 071.
