The Employment Law Centre of WA (Inc) is an independent, not for profit community legal centre specialising in employment law.

We provide free, confidential legal advice on employment matters to vulnerable Western Australian employees.

We aim to help employees understand their rights and obligations so that they feel confident in pursuing their legal options.

If you have been dismissed from your employment, be aware that you may have as little as 21 days to make a claim. 



Our service is OPEN

The health and safety of our clients, staff and volunteers is paramount. As a result, we have transitioned to work remotely. This has had a temporary impact on the capacity of our service.

The main way to contact us is to call the Advice Line or complete an online enquiry form.

If you cannot get through on the phone, please complete an online enquiry form.

Thank you for patience and understanding as these new systems are put in place.,
