What is HR Assured’s legal representation policy?

In the event that a claim is made against you by an employee, as part of your HR Assured package you will be represented by FCB Workplace Law in Australia and LangdonHudsonButcher in New Zealand.

Who is FCB Workplace Law and why do you want them on your side of the bar table?

FCB Group’s law firm, FCB Workplace Law is Australia’s leading workplace relations law firm. It is a specialist firm and a vital member of the FCB family.

FCB Workplace Law only practises in the area of workplace relations. The firm has been established for over 20 years and is equivalent to (or larger than) the entire workplace relations teams in many top-tiers firms.

This means that if you are a client of HR Assured, even if your matter becomes litigious it will be handled within the FCB Group, not transferred to an external third-party legal services provider who knows nothing about your business.
