Employment Law

New Zealand employees enjoy many benefits under our labour laws, such as mandatory annual leave, eligibility to join unions, protection from unjustified dismissal and the right to work in a safe environment.

We can advise employers on how to implement best practice systems for managing employee performance, handling dismissal processes and recommending best practice health and safety internal controls.  We can also represent employers or employees in a personal grievance dispute, and to negotiate the best outcome for our client.
