How we can help you
We provide a complete and comprehensive employment law and human resource service dedicated to helping you to resolve workplace issues.
Most employment relationship problems can be resolved either through negotiation or through mediation provided by the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment mediation service. We will always try to help our clients resolve issues in the most pragmatic manner and without incurring large costs.
However, in the minority of cases which are not resolved through negotiation or mediation Paul can represent you in the Employment Relations Authority and if necessary the Employment Court. This is where Paul’s legal background becomes important – he won’t pass you off to another legal representative should your case need to go to Court.
We work with employers on making sure they have appropriate Human Resources policies and procedures. We can also provide an outsourced Human Resources solution tailored to suit your business.
Paul has substantial experience In Industrial Relations, having negotiated Collective Agreements with numerous unions across different sectors throughout New Zealand.
