Two Workers Option 2 Blog

Slater and Gordon are proud supporters and actively work with the Victorian Trades Hall Council’s Young Workers Centre (YWC) – having recently concluded a mentoring night for young lawyers who gathered at the centre earlier in August. The YWC Victoria is a one-stop shop for young workers to learn about their rights at work and seek legal advice and assistance.

The Centre has accomplished a lot since its opening in February 2016, including successful industrial campaigns against Grill’d, Subway and Honey Birdette as well as regular television appearances on The Project and A Current Affair. The Centre has quickly become an authority on the exploitation of young workers in this country and has also claimed over $200,000 in underpayments for young workers across a number of different industries.

Slater and Gordon Senior Associate Carita Kazakoff was recently given a leave of absence to take up the position of solicitor at the Centre and our industrial lawyer Abbey Kendall is a member of the Committee of Management.

We look forward to working with the Young Workers Centre to assist young and exploited workers into the future.

Thank you for your feedback.
