Legal Representation

AFEI services are designed to minimise employer exposure to litigation or compensation claims. However, mistakes still happen and doing the right thing doesn’t necessarily insulate employers from unjustified claims by disaffected employees, or impossible to implement regulation.

In today’s litigious environment every employer needs to be confident they’ve got the best possible team to represent and defend them against a potential claim or prosecution across the ever increasing areas of exposure.

Over the last five years, AFEI has been involved in thousands of formal industrial cases in the federal and state industrial tribunals and other specialist courts. We have advised, represented and defended employers of all sizes and across all industries and continue to provide our members.

We have a specialist legal firm called AFEI Legal. We focus on industrial relations, employment, discrimination, work health and safety and workplace legal matters.

As we work only for employers and represent their interests in tribunals, in dealing with governments, on industry bodies and elsewhere our expertise gives us a distinct advantage over lawyers without this breadth of experience and knowledge. We know your business and your industry.

Our rates for this service are competitive and lower than the costs of an external firm.
