Unfortunately (despite all the positive reviews) our experience with Prosper was extremely disappointing and I have fed this back to the firm. We had one of our lead-in consults with an Associate Lawyer at Prosper on Tue 21.11.23 (15mins) and in LESS THAN 2 days we accepted Prosper's contract/terms, only to be told "we do not have the capacity to take on this matter". We were instead told, "you can use the “Find A Solicitor” function on the Queensland Law Society website to find a lawyer”. During this period there had been no change to the content/scenario regarding the matter whatsoever. It made the whole interaction with Prosper frustrating and unrewarding for us personally.

Why should I hire an employment lawyer for professional advice?

Employment law is a complicated area of law. It is also a highly regulated area of law. This means that there are lots of things that employers and employees can and can’t do.

Poorly performing staff or lawsuits can be costly for employers. On the other hand, salary and wages is a main source of income for many Australian workers. This means that it is worth investing in professional legal advice.

An employment solicitor can help employers and workers understand their legal rights and obligations.

What is involved in workplace investigations?

Workplace investigations involve gathering information and making findings about whether things have or have not happened. Those findings are then reported to the employer who then uses that information to decide what to do next.

Does the Fair Work Act cover employment law?

The Fair Work Act is the main piece of legislation that covers employment law in Australia. There are lots of other laws and regulations that cover employment law. Contracts, Modern Awards and Enterprise Agreements are also important when it comes to employment law.

There are also court decisions that interpret law and explain similar legal issues and their outcome.

We use all of these tools, as well as our deep knowledge and experience, in providing our clients with strategic advice and progressing matters.
