Victorian, Tasmanian and Queensland workers have just received a new digital tool through a partnership between a Community Employment Rights Legal Centre, a global software firm, and a law school.
JobWatch’s Not-for-profit Employment Rights Community Legal Centre has introduced a web application; JobWatch Employment Rights Information App which provides automated and tailored employment rights assistance to employees about their rights in the workplace.
“We are very pleased to introduce this application. creating an extremely valuable legal employment resource for all workers who require information and guidance on their rights in a very complex area of the law. This technology can provide employment rights information and assistance, to those who cannot readily access it. This application is an innovative way to help workers who need assistance and often do not know where to turn to for information and support” said Zana Bytheway, JobWatch Executive Director.
The online application, provides employees with targeted information regarding their legal rights in the fields of Unfair Dismissal, Discrimination, General Protections and Harassment. The application was developed in partnership with Melbourne Law School (MLS) and Neota Logic, an intelligent software provider focused on the legal sector.
“I’m delighted that Neota Logic and JobWatch are continuing the momentum established by the Melbourne Law School students who built the original JobWatch App in their Law Apps class. In Law Apps, the first subject of its kind in Australia, students design and build web based applications that provide free individually tailored legal information to the public.” said Gary Cazalet from MLS.
Julian Uebergang, Neota Logic APAC Managing Director added
“We are very excited to work with JobWatch and MLS to launch an incredibly valuable application that provides real-time assistance to employees who need help.”
