We are pleased to announce that from 1 April 2021 the Workplace Advice Service will be available nationally.
We have recruited a further 14 new partner organisations to provide legal assistance to clients in the Northern Territory, the Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania. This brings the total number of our partner organisations to 85.
The Workplace Advice Service is designed to improve access to justice and reduce complexity for its users. It is a free legal advice program co-ordinated by the Fair Work Commission.
In partnership with private law firms, Community Legal Centres, Legal Aid and barristers, we offer 1 hour of free legal advice to unrepresented individuals and small business employers on the issues of alleged unfair dismissal, bullying and the protection of workplace rights.
