Employment Advice


New Zealand is a nation of small businesses

Employment laws are overly complicated and costly.

This means that most NZ businesses just don’t have the time and resources to keep fully up to date with all the rules and regulations, which leaves them exposed to employment legal issues.

Are employee problems dragging your business down?

We provide advice for employers who don’t want to become an employment law expert. For example, we can help you navigate complicated employment laws to solve issues between you and difficult employees.

We have a licensed investigator who can undertake independent investigations that will exclude the employer from being accused of bias.

Some of the services we can provide for employers:

  • Sound employment law advice
  • Mediation representation
  • Union negotiations
  • Develop strategies to solve employee problems
  • Coaching on employee relations
  • Advise on performance issues

Don’t let employment problems damage your business. Call us on 0800 247 9393 or complete this form for free initial advice.
