Employment

Every business is different. Each person has his or her own attitude to risk and this is particularly true when dealing with employment issues.  In some situations, there will be clients who want to take a stand and others who want to resolve an issue as quickly as possible.

That’s why it’s so important to work with lawyers who take the time to understand your objectives in each individual situation and who adjust their approach accordingly.

We help employers of all sizes from owner/operators and SME’s to multinationals, as well as senior executives, on a full range of employment law issues. This includes front-end advice such as employment and contracting agreements, workplace policies, holiday and leave, remuneration, privacy and human rights issues and advice, and restraint of trade and confidential information through to collective bargaining and restructuring and redundancy advice.

If things go wrong, we can assist with disciplinary, performance-related, bullying and harassment issues, personal grievances, workplace stress claims and health and safety issues. We help resolve disputes through mediation, other forms of dispute resolution and Court and Authority representation. Our technical knowledge of employment law, along with our ability to present your case to your best advantage, means we represent your best chance of success.

If you operate around New Zealand, you’ll have access to one of the largest national team of employment lawyers. This means you’ll get to work with locally-based lawyers helping you to achieve your desired outcome via the means that best suits you.
