IMPORTANT MESSAGE (COVID-19)

We are taking practical steps to protect our clients, staff, families and the wider community from the spread of COVID-19 under the New Zealand Government COVID-19 Protection Framework (currently RED).  We are able to meet with fully vaccinated clients in our offices by appointment only as we are currently operating with half our team in the office and half our team from home.  We will make alternative arrangements (phone, email & video conference) for clients not fully vaccinated, or not willing to provide their vaccination status.  Appointments are required to be made in advance.  A face covering is required to be worn while visiting our offices.

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.
