Employment lawyers for senior employees and executives in Melbourne, Sydney, Australia-wide and expatriate
Executive Rights Employment Lawyers have expertise in providing employment law advice to middle to senior management employees in Sydney, Melbourne or any other Interstate or International location.
We have extensive experience and a track record in achieving excellent results for Australian executives and expatriates in their employment law matters.
Need an employment contract review?
The terms you bargain for when entering the employment relationship will significantly affect the terms you can expect to receive upon exiting that relationship. Contractual terms are “organic” i.e. inter-related and need to be understood in that light. We can advise on these issues.
For more information, see Negotiating an executive employment contract
Facing a redundancy?
Many senior employees labour under a misapprehension as to their redundancy rights. The value of those rights depends upon the “fine print” of the redundancy policy or employment contract provisions (assuming they exist). Your only entitlement to a severance payment may be based on Federal legislation. You should make no assumptions about the value of those rights. We can advise you as to your redundancy rights and how best to approach the negotiations to maximise the payout.
For more information, see Redundancy advice – are you entitled to a severance payment?
Need urgent advice on a deed of release?
You have only one chance to resolve those issues which will affect the rest of your career. You need to lock down not only the financial but also the reputational issues arising from your departure. We can advise on how to do that.
