The Connect Legal Team undertakes its legal services throughout all Australian courts and tribunals from the Federal Circuit Court of Australia, the NSW Chief Industrial Magistrates Court, the Australian Human Rights Commission, the Fair Work Commission, and all state discrimination and small business tribunals.

The Connect Legal Team has a sound and detailed understanding of the Fair Work Act 2009, the Racial Discrimination Act 1975, the Sex Discrimination Act 1984, the Disability Discrimination Act 1992, the Age Discrimination Act 2004, the Corporations Act 2000 whistle-blowing provision, the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and the multitude of modern awards that apply to employees.

From way back in the late 1990s, Jake always understood the predicament of employees, especially when they had been terminated unjustly and had experienced unlawful discrimination and it was essential to safeguard their rights. Over the last twenty-plus years Connect Legal has acted in various landmark legal cases for sham contracting, racial discrimination, and owner-driver award underpayments. Please see our judgment page for more detailed information.

The Connect Legal Team also offers its services on a ‘No Win No Fee basis and will provide detailed advice regarding the strengths and merits of your case.

Connect Legal and Jake is a very firm believer in the ‘No Win No Fee' policy because he does not deem it fair and just, an employee is required to pay a solicitor for their legal work upfront and throughout their matter and cannot back their reputation and skills in finding effective and workable legal solutions.

Thereby our No Win No Fee policy will ensure you are only charged a legal fee, only if we are able to successfully resolve your employment and discrimination claim.

The Connect Legal team offers its legal services to employees, contractors, small businesses, and owner drivers Australia-wide, in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and regional Australia.

Accordingly, if you believe your employment and workplace rights have been breached, please immediately contact Connect Legal, its team of very experienced lawyers who can help and provide you with prompt and realistic legal advice.
