If you have been fired unfairly you may have a claim for compensation for unfair dismissal.

Unfair DismissalUnfair 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.


Reinstatement can be considered as a option to your workplace problems. There can be other solutions to your work problems, for example a change of employment conditions such as working from home, transfer to another area or change of duties. 
If you think reinstatement could be an option for you, we can help you consider this range of possibilities.

Review of Sandy Ward

G’day, more than a lawyer Sandy was like an elder sister to me even during my first call,and I strongly believe relationships create success,I thought this entire thing will be a nightmare knowing how my company had been treating me in the past but I didn’t really had to go through any more stress, issue was resolved in less than a week, thanks Sandy!
