Contentious and non-contentious issues
These include a wide range of employment disputes such as personal grievance claims, the legality of strikes and lockouts under the Employment Relations Act 2000 and claims under other legislation (e.g. the Holidays Act, Human Rights Act, Parental Leave and Employment Protection Act, and the Privacy Act) as well as claims under contract, tort or at common law (e.g. breach of terms under employment agreements, breach of confidentiality, or breach of fiduciary duty).
Non-contentious issues include drafting of collective and individual employment agreements and company policies, ensuring compliance with such policies including health and safety and human rights law, assisting clients with investigative and disciplinary processes, and restructuring/redundancy processes. We can provide advice to clients on a range of day-to-day issues that arise in all employment relationships.
Reducing the risk of liability in employment disputes involves a consultative approach, an adherence to compliance and good communication from the outset of all employment relationships. There are a number of express and implied obligations imposed on all parties to employment relationships and managing this area of law requires not only extensive knowledge, but also real life experience; we are the right people to contact for any employment issue that arises.
We have experience acting for employers, as well as employees from all walks of life, and aim to provide both legal and practical advice to get any problem solved quickly and effectively.
