Employment Law

One of the hats that I wear as a business lawyer in Auckland is as an employment lawyer. Employment law is a critical part of Dukesons Business Law's legal practice.

Employment Law is constantly changing (due to changes in Government or developments in case law) and the demands on employers, and on employment lawyers, are increasing. This is particularly so during current times, where additional burdens are increasingly being placed on employers.

For many businesses, especially small businesses, the increasing burdens on employers are an additional hurdle to doing business and the legal requirements in relation to employment law can seem baffling and sometimes complex. The very heavy onus on following correct procedure in relation to disciplinary matters and redundancies has tripped up many employers.

It's easy for employees to raise employment disputes and to bring personal grievances, so care is required both in terms of having appropriate documentation and of following correct procedure. Even large businesses (with their HR personnel and access to heavy weight lawyers) have been found wanting. Overseas businesses operating in New Zealand find that our employment law can be very different. Attention to detail can be critical.

Not consulting a good employment lawyer is short sighted. Dukesons Business Law will help your business to stay on top of this demanding area of business law.
