Our Services

Human Resources

In business, your people are one of the most important resources, however managing people is often very complex and time consuming.


We are available to externally manage various primary human resource tasks on your behalf, helping you to achieve best practice outcomes.


Industrial Relations (IR) remains a difficult and demanding responsibility for any organisation.


Contemporary IR involves constant awareness of changes to legislation, the application of complex employment law,  and managing positive workplace relationships. 

Mediation & Dispute Resolution

We have extensive mediation experience in the areas of workplace dispute and grievance resolution.


Mediation is an important step to ensure that disputes in the workplace are resolved quickly and amicably, preventing the need for lengthy and costly proceedings before industrial tribunals or the Courts. 


Advocacy has a central role in protecting organisations in the very complex web of industrial relations and human resources. 


We provide a suite of advocacy services across a range of industries, offered at various levels. As part of this, we can act in a lobbying role to relevant stakeholders on matters relevant to or impacting upon your business.

Workplace Investigations

We conduct thorough investigations to provide robust, legally compliant reports.


Our professional and experienced team conducts investigations involving all workplace issues, such as bullying and harassment, discrimination, inappropriate behaviour and misconduct.


Training & Development
Audience and Lecturer

Employees are one of your most important resources, therefore it is vital to make a direct investment through the ongoing training and development of your workforce.


We provide a range of professional training and development services tailored to meet your business's needs and objectives.

Workers Compensation Matters

Managing injured and ill employees is often a complex and time consuming part of any business.


When an employee is injured or ill, the way these situations are handled can have a significant impact on their successful return to work and maintaining a positive relationship in the process.

We provide advice and support on managing injured or ill employees, whether it is work or non-work related.


"Jay Sharpe and I have had a long-standing working partnership since 2008, when his company was recommended to Sunstate to begin working on a workplace agreement for our staff, and we have continued to use Sharpe Industrial Relations for Workplace Agreements and Workplace Policies.

The standard of service by Jay is above and beyond what we ever expected. To be able to ask questions and get an immediate answer is of upmost importance and he is always there even after hours. Their guidance through all processes has made each transition easier than the last. 

I have no hesitation in recommending SWS to any employer and I look forward to

working with them in the near future."
