Employment Lawyers are Expensive
Our Legal Advocates Are Employment Law Experts and we are
No Win No Fee!*

If you have been dismissed without the correct procedure, or treated unfairly at work, get confidential advice about taking a personal grievance with your employer.



We are a No Win No Fee organisation.

This means that we will only charge a fee if we are successful in obtaining a financial settlement for you in addition to other terms of settlement, e.g. written apology and reference, changed from being fired to having resigned.

Where we assist with disciplinary and other meetings that achieve non-financial settlement, such as job reinstatement after being fired unfairly, we charge an agreed hourly rate.


Our Employment Law Specialists Throughout NZ can support you with:  

  • Filing personal grievance claims,
  • Unjustified dismissal claims (being fired unfairly,
  • Unjustified disadvantage claims, (being treated unfairly)
  • Discrimination or sexual harassment claims,
  • Exit settlement negotiations,
  • Disciplinary investigation processes,
  • Staff restructuring and redundancy situations,
  • Wage arrears and holiday pay claims,
  • Department of Labour mediations,
  • Employment Relations Authority Investigations,
  • Employment Court hearings

Emma was able to quickly and efficiently resolve the matter
City: Auckland

Emma’s extensive knowledge of HR best practice and employment law was invaluable in bring my employment negations to a head. Emma was able to quickly and efficiently resolve the matter. At the beginning of the negotiation I felt vulnerable and marginalised by my employers, after engaging and working with Emma I was empowered and positive about having achieved the outcome I wanted.

Highly Recommended
City: Hamilton

Carole Sandford represented me for an Employment Dispute. Although I did not know her beforehand, Carole made me feel completely at ease as she continually kept me updated by text and was totally committed to my case. Carole did as she said she would by the deadline set by us and I felt comfortable and empowered by having engaged her services.
My case was small and over quickly yet I would not have minded having Carole represent me on a longer case as she was thorough, had read all the notes and worded my winning case very succinctly.
I completely and highly recommend Carole Sandford.

I recently had the experience of having Work Law Ltd represent me for an employment issue.
I was very fortunate to have Kam Bailey as my advocate.
I cannot speak highly enough of Kam's commitment, attention to detail and professionalism throughout the whole process and am very happy with the outcome that she achieved for me.
I highly recommend Kam as an advocate for anyone facing employment related issues.

Kam is awesome!
City: Auckland

Kam listened to what I had to say from the first phone call and gave me the strength, reassurance, and constructive no “BS” advise to follow through and deal with my employment issue, and even though extremely busy drove 10 hours in one day to attend my mediation which I really appreciated as I couldn’t of done it alone.
Thanks Kam…. I am happy with the result and have now moved on putting it behind me.

Thank you for representing me at mediation
City: Auckland

I would like to thank you for representing me at mediation. I know I could not have got through the mediation without you as it was a long and stressful time until I contacted you. You were very professional and showed me empathy through the process which helped to put me at ease. Once again a big thank you.
