no win no fee

We are a No Win No Fee organisation.  Like Employment Lawyers our Employment Advocates can represent you in all legal matters in the area of employment law.

What we do

Unfair Dismissal

Unfair Dismissal or Unjustified Dismissal is when an employee is dismissed from their job in a harsh, unjust or unreasonable manner. We can file a personal grievance on your behalf if you have been fired without the correct process. 

Disciplinary Meetings

We can attend your disciplinary meeting and represent you. This way you are sure to get the best possible outcome.  It's important to take any disciplinary meeting seriously.

Mediation Services

An 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 for you 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.  There are some steps you need to take.

Personal Grievance

A Personal Grievance is a legal document.  Therefore it's a very good idea to have a Legal Professional do it for you. Don't wing it, call us for help. 

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.  We're expert at negotiating exit packages.

We do this because we deserve every employee deserves access to justice. We are professional and caring and just like Employment Lawyers, we are experts in the field of NZ Employment Law.

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 legal representative.  

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,” 


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.

Thanks for the great review Melchor, we agree, Sandy is a great Employment Advocate. Sandy is not actually an employment lawyer but Sandy along with all our other Advocates is an expert in Employment Law and can do the same job as an Employment Lawyer.

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
