Kingsford Legal Centre runs specialist employment law advice clinics. We offer both daytime and evening employment law appointments. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused problems for people at work through losing their job, having to work from home or having their work or hours changed. If you have been dismissed, are having problems at work, or are not sure if what your employer is asking you to do is correct, you can contact us to see if we are able to give you advice. Two of the main ways people's work has changed is by being 'stood down' or being unsure about government assistance called 'JobKeeper'. This page has links to two fact sheets about these issues and a video about worker's rights.
