If you have been fired unfairly you may have a claim for compensation for unfair dismissal.
Unfair dismissal is when an employee is dismissed from their job in a harsh, unjust or unreasonable manner.
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.
It’s a very good idea to get legal advice from an Employment Lawyer or Employment Advocate before starting a proceeding against your employer. Employment Advocates are experts in employment law, but the difference between lawyers and advocates is that 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.
Because we only get paid if we win your case we need to be selective about the cases we take on. It’s absolutely free to call us and discuss your situation. A free and confidential conversation will usually help you decide on your next move and clarify whether or not you have a solid case.
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.
If you are unsure whether or not you have a case just give us a call or email us to discuss your situation.

I was feeling overwhelmed, but Kam explained my options
I was very thankful for Kam Bailey’s help with my employment issue. I was feeling overwhelmed but wanted to confirm that I had options. Kam was very straight forward and explained things well. She then put into action what we decided and I was happy with the outcome. I definitely felt that she was working for me. Thanks Kam for your help.
