Welcome to Employment Law Online, an online resource proudly brought to you by McDonald Murholme Barristers & Solicitors.

At McDonald Murholme, we understand that there is an inevitable imbalance between the power of the employer and the employee in the absence of a powerful union movement or professional employee association.

The Fair Work Act 2009 (Cth) gives the power back to the employee to ensure their employer follows the relevant laws. The employees are able to expose the employers who are in breach of the laws, allowing the employee an opportunity to apply for compensation where applicable.

Thanks to Employment Law Online you can search through commonly asked questions relating to workplace concerns and find counsel in the detailed answers.

To get started, please select one of the categories above or you can further refine your search using our search bar at the top of the screen. The information here is geared to assist employees dealing with problems at work and empower those in need. The workplace should be a positive environment and unlawful treatment should be dealt with.
