For Employees

Employment Law Specialist Auckland

I am available to act for employees on employment issues (subject to any conflicts). I have regularly acted for senior employees on various complex matters including:


  • Employee bonus schemes and underpayments by employers.
  • Resisting the disestablishment of a General Manager’s role on the purported ground of redundancy.
  • Bringing a complaint on behalf of a senior employee under the Protected Disclosures Act to ensure she was adequately protected from any retributive conduct.
  • Acting for the former CEO of a New Zealand bank on alleged misrepresentations made by his former employer.
  • Acting for a group of employees on pay equity and discrimination matters.
