We are taking practical steps to protect our clients, staff, families and the wider community from the spread of Coronavirus. Many of our staff will be working remotely from our offices. Please avoid visiting our offices if you are unwell, are displaying known Coronavirus symptoms such as coughing or a fever, or have had contact with someone who is unwell. Where possible we will prefer to hold appointments by phone, email or video conference. Please help us by making appointments in advance if you need to visit our offices so that we can arrange for you to be seen.

Employment Law

From the outset, we work to ensure our clients are entering into an employment agreement well advised and the contract structured to achieve a harmonious employment relationship in the future.
When it comes to dealing with disputes that do arise, our approach is to give our clients every opportunity to work towards a mutually acceptable outome.
We advise on: 
  • Disciplinary procedures.
  • Holiday, retirement and parental leave issues.
  • Human rights, discrimination and disability compliance.
  • Individual and collective employment contracts.
  • Occupational Safety and Health.
  • Procedures for hiring and dismissing employees.
  • Redundancy and restructuring.
  • Resolving and negotiating employment disputes.
  • Sexual harassment in employment.
  • The Privacy Act 1993.
Please contact us for advice or further information about our services.
