Allens Arthur Robinson is the latest firm to announce a salary freeze as a result of the global financial crisis.
Chief executive partner Michael Rose is today giving staff in Allens’ Brisbane office the news, having this week conducted a series of face-to-face meetings with staff in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne.
There is no plan for forced redundancies, but voluntary options have been put on the table, as well as flexible work arrangements and purchased annual leave.
No target redundancy numbers have been firmed up by the firm. The pay freeze will take effect from 1 July this year.
