Fair Work Australia, the independent national workplace tribunal, began its operation on 1 July 2009 to oversee the new workplace relations systems. The body primarily focuses on providing assistances in employment disputes, such as bargaining and enterprise agreements, unfair dismissals, regulation of industrial actions, among other workplace matters.

Achieving desirable and effective outcomes for clients, whether within Fair Work Australia or not, takes more than the best legal advice. It requires strong people skills as well as a mix of commercial understanding and practical experience. Maguire & McInerney combines all these qualities.

Maguire & McInerney possesses the expertise and experience that will provide clients with practical legal advice in all aspects of workplace relations, including:

• Discrimination and remuneration

• Industrial relations

• Unfair, unjust or harsh dismissals

• Workplace agreements

• Restraint of trade

• Termination of employment

• Occupational Health & Safety
