Expertise

Veronica is an employment lawyer who has a range of experience in employment-related matters, with a focus on assisting clients with employment disputes and resolutions.

She works regularly on unfair dismissal and general protections disputes, terminations, workplace investigations, preparation of policy and contract documentation, and modern slavery compliance.

Veronica is not a believer in a “one size fits all” approach and, therefore, offers tailored support and advice to her clients based on their specific needs.

  • assisting a company in defending a discrimination claim made in the Australian Human Rights Commission;

  • providing advice and preparing new workplace behaviour policies in light of the introduction of the positive duty requirement on employers;
  • assisting a company and its employee in defending a claim brought by a former employer for breaches of post-employment obligations; and
  • assisting a foreign-owned subsidiary in undertaking a legally privileged workplace investigation and providing advice on the findings of the investigation.
