1. Apprentice/Trainee Legal Support

We all have Legal Risk

Seven out of 10 people, just like you experience some form of legal life event each year.

If you don`t think you will need a Lawyer, then think again!

Today many apprentices and trainees are faced with increasing legal issues and the burden of how to effectively deal with them. Most struggle, simply to understand the law as it may apply to them on a day to day basis, let alone deal with its impact or the costs associated with trying to do so.

Apprentices and trainees do not perform well when confronted with legal problems. Many suffer anxiety, frustration and in some cases depression. This effects their ability to focus on and maintain their studies and in a lot of cases their capacity to work within their apprenticeship or traineeship. 

Apprentices and trainees on average have a requirement two to three times a year for some form of legal assistance. With one in ten experiencing some form of major legal issue within a twelve month period.

The most common of these being:

Property related - tenancy and landlord issues;  Motor vehicle and drivers licence offences; Employment/workplace relations matters; Personal injury and property damage; Consumer fraud; Debt related matters; Burglary and theft; Alcohol and drug related matters.

Don`t fall victim to Identity Theft

Identity theft and fraud are the fastest growing crimes globally. Together they cost Australians personally and business $2.5 billion and $5 billion dollars respectively each year and this is tipped to rise.

Identity theft happens in a multitude of ways.

Personal information is shared almost everyday as you pay bills, log on to a computer, or engage with any number of transactions with other people and organisations. Identity Theft can range from somebody using your credit card details illegally to make purchases over the internet or telephone, through to having your entire identity assumed by another person to open and operate fictitious bank accounts , take out loans, and conduct other business illegally in your name. The sort of documents offenders steal are credit cards, driver’s licenses, utility bills, bank and credit card statements, and any other documents containing personal information.

For individual victims of identity crime, the impact can be devastating both emotionally and financially, as it can take years and cost thousands of dollars to restore their good names.Identity theft and fraud affects millions of Australians each year. To combat this type of crime, Pre-Paid Legal has partnered with Secure Sentinal, to provide a suite of services designed specifically for your protection and peace of mind. Helping to reduce the risk of you becoming a victim to identity theft and fraud.  Find out how you can prptect your possessions and identity....

3. Employment Support

You have rights - So why not understand them 

Employers and employees both have workplace rights and responsibilities. Employers are obligated by law to provide a safe and healthy work environment. Understanding what your rights and entitlements are and what is expected of you is the first stage of any employment relationship. So too is having access to advice and support when something goes wrong or you feel your not being treated in a fair manner the way you should be. There are rules to help protect employees in the workplace especially for those who are young and inexperienced and starting employment for the first time.

Apprentices and trainees are considered employees and are normally contracted to an employer for a nominal period of time, enabling them to successfully gain competence in their chosen trade as an apprentice, or vocational area as a trainee. As such they are entitled to receive entitlements the same as other employees such as: annual leave, sick leave, public holidays, superannuation, workers compensation and allowances.
