Employment

Our team of highly qualified employment specialists act for some of the largest employers in the South Island and advises small to medium enterprises. We are experienced in all employment-related areas including:

  • drafting and reviewing employment agreements
  • restraints of trade and protection of confidential information
  • advising on the employment implications of business sale and purchases
  • employment policy development
  • restructuring and redundancy
  • advice on compliance, including Holidays Act, parental leave, human rights and discrimination
  • disciplinary matters
  • collective bargaining
  • relationship management
  • employee misconduct
  • performance issues
  • representation in mediation and court appearances in all court related issues

Specialist experience through working with clients in the education, health, and local government sectors ensures we understand our clients’ needs.

We take a commercial approach to risk and dispute avoidance. Our advice is strategically focused, goal orientated, and aimed at avoiding or resolving disputes as efficiently as possible. The wide experience of our Employment Team provides a range of skills and styles which allows a good fit with individual client culture.

We recognise that clients often need immediate employment law advice. We are able to respond quickly and to offer relevant, practical, up-to-date recommendations. We never lose sight of the fact that we are dealing with people. Understanding human nature is as important as understanding the law.

We tailor our approach to our clients, thinking about their needs and their preferred method of dealing with a particular situation. It is this flexibility and pragmatism that sets us apart. Members of our team have run companies with 30 plus employees, and been involved with Trade Unions in previous roles and so understand the dynamics and key concerns of both sides.

Our team advises clients on the full spectrum of employment law issues including restructuring, redundancies, relationship management, employee misconduct and performance issues. We seek to avoid disputes but if necessary we will resolve them quickly and cost-effectively. We resolve the vast majority of problems at, or before, mediation.

We help clients to apply the raft of employment legislation to their businesses, including health and safety, privacy, parental leave, equal employment opportunities, and human rights laws.

The team has experience advising many private and public sector organisations on employment issues including local authorities and educational institutions.

We have represented a number of companies charged with offences under the Health and Safety in Employment Act, the most recent one of which involved an appeal to the High Court which resulted in charges being dropped.

Our team regularly presents seminars to our clients on topical employment issues.
