On average, people spend over 90,000 hours of their life in their workplace. The workplace should be a pleasant place for everybody, and unresolved issues can escalate to the point where they cause big problems for employers and employees.
Zealand Employment can help with employment law advice across New Zealand. With our team of employment advocates, we can represent you as an employee or employer to resolve any employment conflict. We deal with the Employment Relations Authority and are experienced in the New Zealand legal system. With a wide range of employment expertise, we can represent you to achieve the best outcome.
What are employment advocates?
We represent you during employment disputes, particularly in the early stages of resolution and at mediation.
Employment advocates play a similar role to employment lawyers. We are human resources and immigration law experts who know employment law like the back of our hands. We can represent you in your workplace and all the way to the Employment Court if necessary.
Zealand Employment works with clients all over New Zealand. Our head office is in Christchurch, and we are available to provide advice wherever you are via phone, Skype or Zoom.
We are an ethical and professional organisation. We will negotiate payment for our services – there is no advantage to us or our clients to drag things out, or to settle too quickly. The process will take just as long as it needs to take to get the best result for you.
We can safely and confidentially help you to discuss workplace problems, and act as an independent advocate to find solutions in mediation. We can help you understand the other party and settle a dispute amicably.
If you have been dismissed unfairly or have been the victim of a workplace dispute, we can help advise you on how to resolve the problem and what rights you have. We can advise you on holiday leave, leaving during a trial period and more. Read more.
If you need advice on employees or want us to advocate on your behalf in employment difficulties, get in touch. It can be challenging finding the right employee, and even more so when you employ the wrong one.
We can also help with drafting employment agreements that are tailored to your circumstances. We understand every sector works differently and our in-house experts can draft an employment agreement that suits you and your employees. Read more.
