We are not able to help with:
- Contracts, either at the outset of employment or during employment
- Unpaid wages and entitlements disputes
- Second opinions
- Work cover and other injury related matters
We may be able to help someone who is not sure if they are a contractor or an employee, or who suspects they are a sham contractor - but will cease assisting if it becomes clear that the person is conducting a business (genuine contractors).
If someone is eligible for help or advice from a union, it is preferable that they are referred to their union. For wages and entitlements disputes, we encourage referrals to the Fair Work Ombudsman.
