Effective management of employment and industrial issues is critical to the success of any business.
In New Zealand’s competitive business environment, awareness of the complex legislation and regulations governing their relationship between employer and employee is an absolute necessity.
We offer practical and effective advice to employers in the following areas:
- Entering into employment relationships/ agreements;
- Ongoing monitoring of the relationship, reviews and disciplinary processes as well as adapting to legislative changes;
- Dealing with disciplinary matters and personal grievances raised by employees;
- Advising and circumstances relating to redundancy.
The failure to appreciate Employer obligations or obtain competent advice can result in incorrect procedures being adopted when dealing with disciplinary matters or termination of employment relationships.
We offer advice to employees of their legal rights and options through all stages of their employment relationship, including commencement (employment relations agreements), disputes that may arise during the employment relationship and the prospect of personal grievances arising from disciplinary action, harassment and unjustified dismissal and/or redundancy.
