Kyle works in Clifford Gouldson’s Workplace team, where he works closely with Director Danny Clifford. He works on matters concerning employee management, workplace disputes and workplace health and safety.
He enjoys working in the Workplace area of law for many reasons, including the interactions with clients, the dynamic nature of the legal framework and the broad scope of issues encountered in Australian workplaces.
Kyle has a broad range of experience assisting with the management of employees including employees who are ill or injured, belligerent, family members or hold senior positions within an organisation.
Kyle has an approachable and empathetic manner. He is composed and has a measured approach to situations, which is reassuring for his clients during periods of distress.
Before working in law, Kyle worked in the disability services sector, including seven years as a disability support worker and 12 months in a human resources role assisting local small business adapt to the changes of the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Both of these roles were with Big Dog Support Services.
Being exposed to the complexities of the NDIS and helping individuals and businesses navigate the disability sector has influenced Kyle’s approach to his matters and clients. In particular, it made him more approachable and empathetic to the situations individuals find themselves in, both excellent attributes for a Workplace lawyer.
Kyle always wanted a career in law, as he enjoys helping people solve problems, and the logical nature of law appeals to him.
Outside of work, Kyle enjoys hiking, running and travelling. He is also a committee member of Whats Up in Disability, a local magazine that highlights events and issues relevant to those with a disability.
