Employment


With our broad client base, we are involved in establishing, maintaining and terminating employment relationships for both employers and employees.
 
If you are an employer, we can provide you with employment agreements and policies that are tailored to your particular business requirements and we can keep you updated about legal developments and the benefits of options such as fixed-term employment agreements and flexible working arrangements.  We also provide letters, forms and checklists to help you comply with the procedural requirements relating to warnings or dismissals (including by way of redundancy).
 
If you are an employee, we can review your employment agreement and ensure that the terms and conditions offered to you are fair and reasonable and appropriately reflect what you are expected to do for the employer.
 
If problems arise in the workplace, we provide pragmatic advice about the legal position and possible solutions.  In our experience, it is normally in both parties’ interests to resolve any problems quickly and we encourage our clients to contact us in the early stages of a possible conflict to discuss any issues or queries they may have.
 
We represent both employers and employees at disciplinary meetings.  We provide advice and representation at mediations.  If the dispute is still not resolved, we can appear with you in the Employment Relations Authority and Employment Court.
