7 tips for robust and safe employment arrangements:

Employment contracts that work for you

Our employment contracts are comprehensive, straightforward and ensure both the employer and the employee know where they stand.   

In contrast, imprecise employment contracts can hold you back, distract you from your core business, and limit your profit margins.

Ensure compliance with legislation and other laws 

With our help, you can ensure that your employment contracts, policies and practices comply with the Fair Trade Act 2009 and other legislation.  We will keep you abreast of any legislative changes and their implications for you.

Change your business, check your employment arrangements 

A change in your business structure, ownership arrangements or the nature of your work may also impact how you can lawfully employ your team. As your trusted business partner, we will bring these issues to your attention as your business develops.

Get ahead of the game

Time and energy spent with us early on will save you time, expense and stress in the future. 

For example, if you’re wishing to terminate a staff member’s employment, consultation with us before you start that process will give you a firmer footing in the process to come. 

A safe workplace is a productive workplace 

The safety of your staff and your customers is your responsibility.  Together we can formulate effective solutions to the tricky health, safety and wellbeing questions thrown up in your workplace.  We will also keep you abreast of developments in the law which apply to your business.

Protect your business with policies and procedures 

A comprehensive and detailed suite of policies and procedures is central to a safe and productive workplace and can protect you from a legal claim.  We can provide you with templates and examples for your business, and review and comment on proposed new policies or your existing ones.

Actively manage any disputes

The best approach to employment disputes is to prevent them with carefully drafted and formulated contracts, policies and strategies. However, if a dispute arises, we will guide you to manage it actively and assertively to protect your interests.
