Work Law = Employment Law;

Just like Employment Lawyers, our Employment Advocates are experts who specialise in NZ Employment Law.

We are Employment Advocates

No Win No Fee Employment Law dvocatesWork Law Ltd is a group of Employment Law Specialists.

Our Employment 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 Law Advocates in NZ by holding ourselves to the highest standards possible.

What is an Employment Advocate?

We know employment law like the back of our hands. We perform a similar role to employment lawyers but we can offer our services on a no win no fee basis. 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 Employment 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?

Call Work Law for help with your employment law problem

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 them 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 come out the other end of it satisfied that they got a fair deal, able to 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 the settlement, e.g. written apology and reference.

But sometimes we charge an hourly rate:

*Where we assist with disciplinary and other meetings that achieve a 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 employment 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 unfair dismissal or employment problem occurred (or the date you became aware of the employment problem) to lodge a personal grievance.

Free phone or email consultation

We stress the importance of consulting an employment 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 employment advocate.

We are also able to advise on recent developments in the Employment Relations Act particularly the new 90 day trial period employment law provisions.

What our clients are saying

My employment law issue was resolved very quickly

Rated 5 out of 5
20 October 2021

Kam had my workplace issue resolved to my advantage in just a week. It was such a relief because I had been under a lot of stress and wanted to leave my position, but the process was quite scary. All of that was lifted from my plate and the result was impressive. Fees are also extremely reasonable and you don’t have to worry as you watch hourly rates build up as that’s not how it works.

Thank you Kam, for your recent assistance, it was greatly appreciated. (Kam Bailey was generous with her time, and very respectful – which certainly are not universal virtues in this profession!) I will be sure to recommend you to anyone I come across in the next period who is affected by the current 2021 mandate situation, or other matters of employment law. I wish you well.
