Employment

 

If you are a prospective employer or employee, it is important to seek legal advice when contemplating a new employment relationship. Consult us before interviewing, to make sure you understand your rights and obligations.

 

We can also help you if you need advice during the course of an employment relationship. A myriad of laws govern employment relationships and impose obligations on both employers and employees. Failure to comply can result in financial penalties and even criminal charges.

 

Hayman Lawyers are equipped to deal with these issues and can provide timely and relevant advice, whatever your occupation or business.

 

We can advise you on all employment matters including:

  • employment agreements
  • personal grievances and disputes, including unjustified dismissal, summary dismissal, discrimination and harassment
  • holidays and special leave
  • minimum wages
  • Privacy Act
  • health and safety issues
  • Human Rights Act
  • the Parental Leave and Employment Protection Act
  • paid parental leave
  • all other employment relationship problems

For further information please contact John Evans, Roger Hayman or Wendy Lindsay.
