Home About Us
We are New Zealand wide Employment Law SpecialistsWe Believe In Access To Justice For Everyone!
What We Do
Work Law Ltd are a group of Advocates who specialise in workplace legal issues.
Our Advocates are either qualified legal professionals or human resources experts. They are All NZ Employment Law Specialists.
What is an Employment Advocate?
We are legal and human resources experts who know employment law like the back of our hands. We can defend you in your workplace and all the way to the employment court if necessary. Employment Advocates either hold law degrees or HR qualifications. Our Advocates are ALL specialists in Employment Law, which means we are fully equipped to help with any Employment Relationship Problem you are facing.
Why do we do this?
Ask anyone on our team why they do this and they'll tell you they love to help people.
We also enjoy the puzzle of working out all the facts and putting it back together in a logical and legal manner and standing up for the rights of people who are unable to stand up for themselves.
But Most Of All: We get great satisfaction from turning around a client's situation from being desperate, quite often in tears and unwell from stress to coming out the other end of it satisfied that they got a fair deal and can move on with their life and work and put it all behind them.
Who We Work For
We believe that everyone deserves access to justice. This means if you can't afford a lawyer but need support with a workplace issue we will do our best to help you.
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.
But sometimes we charge an hourly rate:
*Where we assist with disciplinary and other meetings that achieve non-financial settlement, such as job reinstatement, we charge an agreed hourly rate. We will inform you before we start work if your work will be on a No Win No Fee basis or hourly rate.
How does it work?
When You Contact Us We will:
- Assess your situation over the phone for free
- Help you make a decision about pursuing the matter with your employer (or former employer).
- Refer you to someone who can help you, either someone in our team will take your case and you will be put in touch with your assigned Advocate within 24 hours, or we may occasionally ask you to speak to your employer again or refer you to another service if we are not the right people to help.
You have 90 days from the date your employment problem occured (or the date you became aware of the employment problem) to lodge a personal grievance.
We stress the importance of consulting an advocate as soon as possible to allow sufficient preparation time to raise the personal grievance on your behalf. Contact us via our contact form, complete all your details and our consultant will assign your case to a qualified advocate.
We are also able to advise on recent developments in Employment Relations Act particularly the new 90 day trial period employment provisions.

I couldn't have done this on my own
My employer unfairly dismissed me without correct process. My Advocate out maneuvered my sneaky employer and her lawyer at every turn and I won my case !!! I couldn't be happier, thank you so much Work Law.

By the time I was contacted by Kam, I was already bitterly disappointed with the company I had been working for over 4 years and the many other lawyers I spoke to, in order to seek help post my unfair dismissal, just waiting to take advantage of my situation. I was just about to give up and move on as there didn't seem to be any other way. Kam, right from the beginning listened to me and explained all the laws as well as the options we had. The way she represented me in the mediation was really remarkable and only because of that we were able to get to a resolution right away. I couldn't have hoped for anything better."Do more for others than you would do for yourself" is the motto she has in her email signature and I must say she lives every word of it. Thank you once again Kam.

Thank you so much for all the support I received with my employment problem. You achieved a great outcome to what felt to me like a hopeless situation. I highly recommend the team Work Law, in particular Sandy for her great listening skills and Lawrence for his knowledge and excellent negotiation with my employer. Everyone came away happy with the outcome, I can't thank you enough.

They Saved My Job!
Unfortunately through a misunderstanding with my boss I'd reached a situation where my working relationship was damaged. Lawrence was great at fixing the situation. Ultimately I got to keep my job which is what I wanted and I can continue to support my family.
