Have you been treated unfairly at work?
All employees in New Zealand (including migrants) have employment rights which are set out in various legislation and your employment agreement. Among these rights is a process that should be followed when employment problems or disputes arise. In an ideal work environment, we would discuss our employment problems early and openly with the employer to find a resolution. However, people often feel that they cannot speak up for fear of losing their job.
Please talk to us if you feel that you are being treated unfairly, discriminated or harassed at work, were dismissed from work without a valid reason or fair process, or you are uncertain about your employment rights. With a wealth of employment law expertise, we can help you to understand your rights, explain your options and assist you finding a solution. We can also help you to pursue a personal grievance claim against the employer with the Employment Relations Authority. If you are a migrant, this is done without compromising your immigration status in New Zealand.
We can assist you with all matters involving employment law, including:
