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.
