Australia’s Employment Lawyers

McDonald Murholme lawyers have been the leading force for employee rights for more than 25 years. It has offered fast and efficient services to thousands of employees and continues to do so with more experience and expertise than ever before. It has provided training and knowledge sharing to hundreds of young lawyers who are today leaders in the legal profession in the field of employment law.

Acting for employees with limited resources but valuable legal rights against employers, often with apparently unlimited resources, is always challenging. The risks imposed by that challenge must be managed. McDonald Murholme provides legal knowledge and strategic advice to its clients to manage the challenge. Our strong point has always been our personalised service.

Australian law provides comprehensive rights to employees against wrongful dismissal and workplace bullying. McDonald Murholme has experienced lawyers giving employees access to those laws around Australia. Advice is provided throughout Australia and internationally.

We are dedicated.

11 years ago, Julia Gillard introduced the Fair Work Act to radically improve workers rights and swing the balance of power their way. No law firm has done more than McDonald Murholme to make that law work for employees, whatever their income, whatever their status, whatever their problem.

  • July 2020

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend McDonald Murholme. From the initial consultation, right through to the resolution process, the entire team was supportive, knowledgable and approachable and made what can be a difficult situation much easier. Specifically Trent and Alexandra provided a high level of service, and engaged with me in a very personable manner. I am extremely satisfied with the service I received.
  • July 2020

    I couldn't recommend the team from McDonald Murholme more. Mr Sam Nottle was efficient, professional and achieved a wonderful result. If you are questioning whether to go ahead with an employment matter legally, I would urge you to do so. The team at McDonald Murholme made the process easy & reduced all of my anxiety and stress. Thank you again, Mr Nottle & team, I can't express my appreciation enough.

    I found Arthur Hambas & Katherine Boyles extremely professional & compassionate in my dealings with them. After telling Arthur that I felt the details surrounding my redundancy felt wrong he took on my case & secured me a better payout from my employer. I would not hesitate to recommend Mcdonald Murholme to anyone that has a feeling that something isn't quite right. I greatly appreciate everything you did.
