If you’re fired or unfairly dismissed
Find out what your rights are as an employee to fight unfair dismissal.
Have you been Fired, Sacked or Dismissed on the Spot?
This just shouldn’t happen under New Zealand Employment Law.
If your boss has fired or sacked you without warning you are likely to have a case and we can arrange to talk with your employer about a financial settlement or represent you at mediation or employment court.
The experience of losing your job is likely to be an unpleasant one and you will likely be very upset. We are great listeners, and you will feel better for picking up the phone and getting some expert help.
Do you need an Employment Lawyer? We do have an Employment Lawyer on our team who you can hire at an hourly rate. However we have a mixture of Employment Lawyers and Advocates, our whole team are Employment Law Experts, so you will be in good hands.
One of the biggest differences between lawyers and advocates is the way they charge for their services. Advocates can work on a contingency fee, which is commonly referred to as “no win – no fee”. This means if we take on your case we will charge you a percentage of any payout you receive. If you lose the case, you pay nothing.
We are Employment Advocates. We only get paid if we win your case. This means we need to be selective about the cases we take on. It’s absolutely free to call us and discuss your situation.
80% of cases are resolved prior to or during mediation.
If you are unsure whether or not you have a case just give us a call to discuss your situation.
Note: If you were violent or very abusive in the workplace, an employer is very likely to be justified in firing you and asking you to leave immediately, and it is unlikely we will be unable to assist.
