Employment - Employers

Employment law changes like the weather. Stay on top of constantly shifting employment law. Make sure you are prepared for any eventuality. Whether you want to engage our expertise to assist you through the entire process or have a burning question, we can help.

McVeagh Fleming provides pragmatic and cost-practical advice to employers and employees on various employment-related matters. We understand the complexities of employment law and can assist you in all aspects, restructuring, redundancies, employee relations and grievances, mediation and Employment Relations Authority (ERA) representation.

Stay up to date

Few subjects are as full of controversy, politics and fishhooks as employment law. The ideology of competing governments means that nothing ever stays the same when it comes to the Employment Relations Act 2000.

McVeagh Fleming’s team of employment law specialists makes it their business to stay up-to-the-minute on the Act and associated legislation as well as constantly evolving case law as it happens.

The COVID-19 mandates, parental leave, vaccinations and vaccination passes, health and safety, restructures, bullying and harassment, restraint of trade, confidentiality, the Holidays Act 2003, working from home, and workplace policies are just some of the issues confronting employers. McVeagh Fleming can help.
