Another way we give you more for your membership
Ai Group Legal Pty Ltd, a separate incorporated legal practice wholly owned by Australian Industry Group, can offer your company full services in industrial and human resources law, including occupational health and safety and equal opportunity law.
Ai Group responded to the high cost of legal services incurred by members in the specialist areas of industrial and workplace law through the establishment of Ai Group Legal, to offer members enhanced and specialised legal services, without excessive rates. Our services are available in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria.
Our objective is to provide excellent industrial law services for Ai Group members at a cost level less than is applied by other legal firms.
Ai Group Legal can provide members with professional and specialist legal services in the whole area of industrial and human resources law.
Ai Group Legal commenced operations in 2007, and has already handled a significant number of matters for Ai Group members, covering a wide range of areas within the general industrial and workplace law confines. Ai Group Legal has appointed appropriately qualified legal practitioner directors as required by the terms of the Legal Profession Act and operates strictly in accordance with the terms of the Legal Profession Act.
Our history of working for, and with members on workplace relations and other business issues, gives Ai Group members access to some of the finest legal expertise in the field.
Ai Group Legal does not accept instructions in any area of law outside the general area of industrial and workplace law (including occupational health and safety and equal opportunity law) even though we are licensed to practice law in all areas.
Ai Group Legal does not accept instructions from any parties other than employers.
Employees of Ai Group Legal are strictly limited in the work that they undertake to the area of law referred to. This achieves the high degree of professionalism, quality and specialisation that is offered by Ai Group Legal to members.
The work conducted by Ai Group Legal is a natural extension to the services undertaken by Ai Group and offers an exclusive and additional valuable benefit to members.
Matters already handled by Ai Group Legal include a wide-scale review of employment policies of members necessitated by a recent test case decision, preparation of many contracts of employment with emphasis on the protection of business goodwill, and representation of members in Workcover investigations.
Our lawyers can help with matters relating to workplace general legal matters and employment claims in all courts, including:
- Contract of employment disputes with executives;
- Defending prosecutions for breach of health and safety laws;
- Breach of restraint of trade and confidentiality provisions in employment agreements;
- Urgent court hearings in response to strikes and industrial misconduct;
- Harassment and discrimination claims by employees; and
- All appeals relating to unsatisfactory industrial or workplace decisions
Ai Group Legal is headed by industrial law specialists David Miller and we have specialist workplace relations lawyers across the country.
