Employment

A large number of businesses are inadvertently finding themselves in breach of current Employment Law. The law is changing so fast that it’s hard for everyone to keep abreast of all the latest developments. Our clients put their trust in us so they can maintain their focus on their business knowing they are in safe hands and ensure that they meet the obligations as an employer.

We advise employers on their rights and responsibilities under New Zealand employment legislation, including the Employment Relations Act, Human Rights Act, Holidays Act, Privacy Act, and health and safety legislation.  We also advise employees on their rights regarding the same legislation and assist them through disciplinary matters, personal grievances, restructures and redundancies.

We offer assistance in all areas of employment including Employment Agreements, Disciplinary Matters, Dispute Resolution, Restructuring and Redundancies, and drafting Policies such as Health & Safety and Drug and Alcohol policies.  We can help out with all stages of employment including reviewing the policies that you already have in place. 

We understand that there are many aspects to an employment relationship, so we take into account the legal aspects as well as practical and relationship aspects to achieve our client’s goals.
