​​​​​​Our employment and workplace safety team works with clients to effectively manage all aspects of employment law, industrial relations, health and safety, human rights, privacy, disciplinary and restructuring and redundancy issues. We have a strong appreciation of the needs of employers and we aim to find commercial and innovative solutions to their often complex employment and industrial issues.

Our large and dedicated employment team has broad capability and strength on a national scale. We advise medium to large corporate employers on their rights and responsibilities under New Zealand employment legislation, including the Employment Relations Act, Human Rights Act, Holidays Act, Privacy Act, and health and safety legislation.

The team provides strategic industrial relations advice on bargaining issues, collective agreements, and strikes and lockouts.

We advise blue chip clients on day-to-day issues such as employment contracts, dismissals, restructuring, redundancies, health and safety, employee performance problems and disciplinary situations.

Our employment lawyers regularly participate in disciplinary meetings, attend mediations and appear at investigation meetings and court hearings. The team also advises on the employment aspects of mergers and acquisitions, outsourcings and other commercial transactions.
