EPL / Workplace Risks
Mitigating risk. Supporting positive outcomes.
Creating a safe and healthy work environment involves governance, prevention, response, and recovery.
Our Workplace team supports insurers in dealing with complex issues related to quantum and liability, claims management, litigation, negotiation, and settlement strategies.
We handle claims covering a wide range of concerns, including discrimination (including disability and racial discrimination), unfair dismissals, bullying and harassment, unlawful termination, and breaches of the Fair Work Act's general protections provisions. We thoroughly review and analyse workplace risks and provide recommendations accordingly. We also review policy wording, interpretation, coverage issues, and exclusion clauses to ensure compliance.
We offer advice on employer obligations, employment policies, and procedures to ensure compliance with regulations. We handle litigation defence, claims management, complex liability and coverage disputes, and damages.
