IR ADVOCATES' VISION

IR Advocates’ vision is to ensure that every employee in every workplace is treated fairly. We strive to revolutionise the way employees resolve disputes by providing low-cost yet effective services.

We are your trusted workplace experts in human resource (HR) and industrial relations (IR) in Brisbane. We work with passion and integrity to ensure our clients get the entitlements they deserve. Our director Stephen Arulogun, works closely with our clients to ensure their needs are met and goals are understood.

IR Advocates was formed out of a drive to ensure fair and just outcomes for clients. Too often employees are disadvantaged and do not have a voice to stand up for themselves when employment issues arise. We promise to be upfront with costs and provide a narrow fee estimate at the start of your dispute. We will keep you informed at every step with regards to how your matter is progressing and how we expect it to continue into the future.

Employment law can be difficult to navigate and can result in costly consequences if the AUSTRALIAN FAIR WORK regime is not complied with. We can help by providing simple, plain english advice as to your rights and how to go about resolving your dispute and getting back the entitlements you deserve.

We can assist in many aspects of workplace disputes, such as:

-        Preparing applications for breaches of the Fair Work Act (2009), such as unfair dismissal, adverse action taken against the exercise of a workplace right and workplace bullying and harassment;

-        Preparing wage reviews for underpayment;

-        Representing clients in acquiring documents from their employers;

-        Acting for clients as a paid agent in conciliations and arbitrations of employment law disputes

We have had extensive experience advocating on behalf of workers who have been unfairly discriminated against, dismissed or faced other workplace issues in breach of the Fair Work Act. We have represented clients in disputes in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria across many industries from hospitality to distribution. Our streamlined approach ensures that disputes are resolved expeditiously in line with legislative requirements. Our clients achieve outcomes that meet or exceed their expectations, whether it is reinstatement or compensation.

We look forward to discussing how we can help you with your employment dispute.
