A Big Welcome To The Employment Advocate
Have you recently been dismissed from you job by your employer and feel the process was unfair?
Are you being denied a salary-package benefit that has been promised by your employer but not delivered?
Are you being consistently bullied at work and have tried using all the procedures that exist in your workplace to resolve the problem?
If the answer is “YES” to any of the above then its very likely you may be feeling shocked, helpless, worried or extremely upset. Please remember that it’s not uncommon to experience such feelings after conflict in the workplace but often rectifying such a situation can be simple and fast with the right help and advocacy.
The Employment Advocate is a professional Employee Advocacy Service with a proud record of ensuring West Australians with workplace issues receive appropriate legal and financial remedies for the unlawful acts committed by their employers.
We are a Perth-based firm that helps people to successfully navigate the complicated Federal Fair Work and West Australian Industrial Relations systems.
Our practitioners are carefully selected Industrial Relations Professionals and HR people. Each has considerable knowledge of and experience with Western Australia’s current employment laws.
So, if you have a problem at work you should be talking to The Employment Advocate because it’s our job to help you.
The Employment Advocate can assist in cases involving:
* Unfair or Unlawful Dismissal.
* Denial of Contractual Benefits.
* Advocacy & Representation at Fair Work Commission and WA Industrial Relations Commission Hearings.
* Protecting Your Professional Reputation.

Fill out the questionnaire form at the bottom of this page and one of The Employment Advocate’s industrial relations professionals will contact you promptly as, following an employment termination, the law says you only have 21 days to lodge a claim.
Your first consultation with The Employment Advocate is free.
A person has been dismissed from their employment when:
* Their employment has been terminated at the initiative of the employer, or
* They have resigned their employment but the resignation was forced by something the employer did.
If you have been dismissed from your employment you may be able to make an application for legal remedies, including financial compensation. The law says an application must be lodged within 21 days of dismissal.
A contractual benefit claim is where an employee claims they are entitled to a benefit under their employment contract, or salary package, which has not been paid or has subsequently been denied by their boss.
Examples of denied contractual benefits may include underpayment of wages and/or salary; a promised pay increase that was never delivered, an unpaid bonus or some other contractually-specified benefit that is featured in your employment agreement but has not been paid to you.
We can also assist you to make a General Protections claim that:
* Protects your workplace rights.
* Protects your freedom of association.
* Provides protection from workplace discrimination; and,
* Provides effective relief to you if you have been discriminated against, victimised, or have experienced other unfair treatment.
Legal Remedies for Unfair, Unlawful and/or Unjust treatment
If you believe your dismissal was not legal or you feel you have been denied a contractual benefit or somehow unjustly treated, then you may be eligible for a legal remedy.
We will robustly advocate on your behalf to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of financial compensation that the law allows. The total amount you receive will depend upon a range of variables such as your annual income, length of service and the nature of and reason for dismissal.
Contact the Employment Advocate and let us assess the value of your claim.
If you prefer to be reinstated to your position, this can be proposed and may be accepted by your employer.
As part of the settlement process, we negotiate with your company and may be able to get the terms of dismissal reversed. This means that your employer will retrospectively agree that you resigned instead of being dismissed. Once negotiated, this is often a featured clause in a Settlement Agreement. This is an important career building move because it means you can legally say at future job interviews that you resigned from your position..
Securing Proof Of Your Employment History
We can negotiate an agreement with your employer whereby they will issue a statement of service, confirming your employment and how long you served the business. This helps you to find future employment as you can supply an employment history and reference.
Safeguarding Your Reputation and Future Earning Ability
We often negotiate agreements with employers that keep the grounds for dismissal confidential. A bad boss is therefore legally compelled not to discuss with any potential future employers the reasons for your termination and prevented by law from providing any other negative feedback..This is an important way you can protect your professional reputation and safeguard your future income and career path..
