What is the Claim Process?

Gather Information

The process for addressing your claim varies based on the type of employment dispute, workplace harassment, or other legal issues you need our team to handle. Initially, we will gather all pertinent information, which may include requesting copies of emails, your recollection of conversations, contracts, and job descriptions.

Strategic Planning

Based on the specific employment challenges identified, our employment solicitors will offer tailored advice and suggest the optimal path forward. Collaboratively, we will devise a strategy that aligns perfectly with your unique situation and objectives.

Resolve the Issues

Employment law issues often have diverse resolutions. Typically, legal firms advise initiating communication with the opposing party to seek resolution.

However, if an informal resolution is not effective, a more structured approach may be required. This could include terminating an employee, conducting a workplace investigation, or filing or responding to a Fair Work Commission application. Reach out for a complimentary consultation, and our employment law professionals will guide you through the claims process tailored to your employment issue.

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.
