Unfair Dismissal

Disciplinary Meetings

Mediation Services

Just like an Employment Lawyer An Employment Advocate can be your legal representation at mediation. We will ensure you are prepared to attend and will state your case . Often we can negotiate an exit with your employer or the employment lawyer before the mediation.

Bullying & Harassment

If you don't feel safe at work because of bullying and harassment by your boss or co-workers you can do something about it. We have a very helpful video on our bullying page which tells you exactly what you need to do if you are being bullied at work.

Personal Grievance

A Personal Grievance is a legal document.  Therefore it's a very good idea to have an employment lawyer or an employment advocate do it for you. Don't wing it, call us for help with any employment law issue.

Exit Packages

Sometimes the reason things are going wrong at work is that it's time to part ways, it may be nobody's fault.  It can be an opportunity to negotiate.  Our employment advocates are expert at negotiating exit packages.

We do this because every employee deserves access to justice. Each Employment Advocate on our team is professional and caring. Just like Employment Lawyers, we are experts in the field of Employment Law NZ.

Covid 19 – Coronavirus

Covid 19 Redundancy

Lost your job due to Covid-19?

Regular employment law still applies – regardless of the unusual circumstances that we find ourselves in. This includes everything that has been agreed to in your employment agreement. Any changes should be agreed to in writing.
If your employer has had to close their business due to extreme financial difficulty it will be hard for us to get compensation for you even if the process has not been handled correctly. However, if the employer is continuing to do business and you think your employment rights have been breached we can check it for you.
Remember, you only have 90 days to raise a personal grievance for unfair dismissal.
Please contact us using our contact form.   Give as many details as possible, and we will see if we can help.

We Help Employees and Employers to resolve employment problems

When you engage us to act on your behalf we can often resolve the issue very quickly by discussing the issue with the other party or their lawyer.  

We will advise you of what to do next, and we can often work for you on a contingency basis / also called No Win No Fee.

“The Employment Relations Authority has made it clear that it is an employer’s obligation to ensure they follow their own policies and the required legal processes, and where this does not occur an employee will always have a valid claim,” 

WHAT DOES NO WIN NO FEE MEAN?

This means that when we are negotiating a settlement on your behalf we will only charge a fee if we win your case.  The exception is when we are trying to save your job and there will be no financial outcome, eg Disciplinary Meetings.
