How We Help

  • Sexual assault or violence at work
  • Wages
  • Parental Leave
  • Superannuation and retirement savings
  • Workplace bargaining
  • Occupational Health and Safety issues
  • Disciplinary issues
  • Workers Compensation issues
  • Duress and Coercion
  • Workplace Harassment

If after assessment by our Industrial Officers, you have an established claim and fall into one of QWWS target groups we may be able to offer further intensive assistance including:

  • preparing applications or assisting you prepare for unfair dismissal or discrimination complaints processes
  • advice on self-representation in unfair dismissal or other complaints processes
  • preparing responses to correspondence from your employer

Clients of WWQ who request representation with their matters will be asked to participate in an assessment to ascertain their eligibility to receive a no costs service. WWQ may also offer services to women on a fee for service basis under the QWWS Inc. Positive Workplace Practices (link) arm.

All clients being represented by WWQ will be asked to agree to certain conditions in relation to this assistance and WWQ will reserve our rights to terminate that assistance under certain conditions.
