Job Description

  • Employment Practices Liability (EPL) Lawyer | National Firm
  • Associate or Senior Associate Level (5+ Years PAE)
  • Contact Trudy 3221 1229 or for a confidential briefing  
National Australian firm with an excellent reputation for specialising in Defendant insurance has a NEW position in their Employment Practices Liability team.
You can expect to work with a highly regarded Partner as well as the EPL team on a national level. The work will include a mix of complex and interesting EPL matters, representing insurers and employers across multiple industries. You will provide advice in relations to unfair dismissals; general protections applications; sexual harassments and discrimination claims; as well as complex employment contract claims. This could include regular appearances in the Fair Work Commission as well as various state and federal industrial and discrimination tribunals as well as the Federal, Federal Circuit Courts and various state courts.
The successful candidate will be at Associate or Senior Associate level with a minimum 5 years post admission experience, working primarily within employment law. Experience within an existing EPL team will be highly regarded but not essential. 
Additionally, Professional Indemnity experience will also be viewed favourably.

This role is being offered as either a part-time or full-time role, which is a reflection of the firm’s commitment to accommodating flexible working arrangements to enable them to secure the very best talent and provide a healthy work-life balance to their team.

In addition to a highly competitive salary you can also expect incentive rewards for all lawyers, investment in your professional development, and a range of social and community activities.

At Law Staff we offer all Lawyers a lounge room setting for a relaxed confidential discussion over coffee/tea, allowing you to comfortably provide us with an understanding of your skills as well as your prerequisites in that next role. We are full in our disclosure and by the end of the meeting you will be provided with a detailed profile of these and other opportunities for you to go away and research at your leisure.
