A community law centre says more young people are seeking legal advice in the economic downturn.

Youth Law senior solicitor John Hancock says there's been a rise of 50% in the number of calls to its advice line in the past few weeks, with many related to employment issues.

Issues included personal grievance, dismissals from work and redundancies.
