ABLA is rated highly by independent legal publications, by peers and clients. Our workplace relations practice has a proven track record of excellent service delivery and the highest levels of expertise. ABLA was recently awarded ‘Workplace Relations and Employment Team of the Year’ at the 2016 Australian Law Awards and ‘Highly Commended’ in the category “Specialist Employment Firm of the Year” at the 2017 Australasian Law Awards.

Our workplace relations practice rivals the workplace practices of large full service firms, in terms of the size of our team, the expertise of our practitioners, the complexity of work that we do and the breadth of our client base, which includes top ASX-listed companies as well as Federal and State Government agencies.
We are a unique firm in the Australian legal landscape, in that our workplace practice oversees all of the NSW Business Chamber’s industrial relations activity from a strategic level and appears for members in over 70 industries before the Fair Work Commission. 

We also boast the unmatched experience in Australia-wide industrial test case proceedings. By way of example, in the last 3 years ABLA has acted as the lead employer advocate (on behalf of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry) in the Fair Work Commission Penalty Rates Case, the ongoing Domestic Violence Leave Test Case, the Part Time and Casual Employment Test Case and the 2015 Annual Leave Test Case.
