About Us

We are New Zealand wide Employment Law Specialists

call us, we're here to help with your employment problem

Work Law Ltd are a group of Advocates who specialise in workplace legal issues.  

Just like Employment Lawyers our Employment Advocates are All NZ Employment Law Specialists.  Our Advocates are either qualified legal professionals or human resources experts.  The difference is that we are able to provide our services on a No Win No Fee basis.   We strive to be the best Employment Advocates in NZ by holding ourselves to the highest standards possible.

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.

Don’t Hesitate .. 

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.

What our clients are saying about us:

I cannot recommend Work Law enough!
City: Wellington

The whole experience with these guys deserves a 5 star review!! The first phone call, the way I was listened to, being referred to my Advocate (Sandy) and speaking to her within the hour. It was all 5 star worthy. The advice she gave me and the questions she asked to get to the bottom of the matter made everything clearer even to me as I was down a rabbit hole and couldn't figure out what was going on. Would highly recommend them. Turns out the whole situation was a blessing in disguise as I have come out if it with not just my pride in tact but with a great reference and some financial compensation. I cannot recommend this place enough!

professionalism, kindness, willingness to go the extra mile
City: New Plymouth

I was extremely happy that somebody from WorkLaw picked up my call to 0800 number on a Friday evening. That person was Kam Bailey who, even was after 17:30, took the time to listen and decided to take the case after hearing my story. Kam’s professionalism, kindness, willingness to go the extra mile and the knowledge of the employment laws helped me to successfully resolve my employment dispute. Kam is true to her motto “Do more for others than you would do for yourself” and I cannot recommend her enough. A huge Thank You from all of us

City: Auckland

A massive thank you to Kam for all your incredible support, your diligence and your human touch which can be so rare in this world. I was experiencing an awful situation in my employment and Kam comforted both myself and my Husband and put us at ease. She was professional, kind and had in-depth knowledge in this type of stressful situation and the industry itself. I would not hesitate to recommend Kam Bailey. I will never be able to thank you enough!

I couldn't have done this on my own
City: Christchurch

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.

City: Auckland

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.

Words can not express how grateful and appreciative I am to have had you through out the whole process.
City: Tauranga

A huge thank you to Ken for representing me. Words can not express how grateful and appreciative I am to have had you through out the whole process. Without you nothing would've been resolved and I'd still be in the same position I was in at the beginning.

I wish you all the best with your other clients & cases as I am sure they too will be grateful to have you represent them.

One day we may cross paths again but hopefully not in a mediation room, but as two civilians going about their day. =) 

Keep doing an awesome job Ken, cheers, Kayla.

Quick and Efficient
City: Christchurch

I recently used Work Law for my employment case.

I found my Advocate to be very efficient and always handled issues very quickly and in my best interest.

He ensured I did not worry unnecessarily and always was very honest about any expectations.

He compiled any information when required in the provided timelines.

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.
