    Wellington employment consultant?

    No not for me but for Miss Vicki...

    Anyone used a good employment consultant? There is the distinct posibility of some up coming unpleasantness of the personal grievance nature. Need be wellington or kapiti based...

    Please - I can use a phone book - personal recommendations only...

    Hopefully a smooooth redundancy will ensue but.... arses gotta be arses....

    I don't have any ideas on assistance sorry Paul, but I can say that it seems to be happening more and more these days.

    Fingers crossed and positive thoughts sent you way.
    I can't help in any other way, unfortunately.
    Good luck to Miss Vicki

    Thanks folks... Its all a bit silly really but even corporates seem to insist on doing silly things they have no right to do sometimes and need to stand up for your self... I get a bit antsy when its my loverly wife so we might need a cooler head a steady aim.... Nuts really - I can't see it becoming dramatic but we want to be ready to go.

    Corporates are past masters at doing silly things when it comes to lay offs, small employers make mistakes but corporates have whole departments dedicated to screw their resources of the human kind over and then defending there actions.

    I wish Vicki the best. Sorry can't put you on to a employments relations lawyer in Wellington or on the coast, Palmy I knew a couple.

    Hi there. I tend to sit on the other side of the table but I've come across a Wellington based employment advocate called Graeme Ogilvie whose been pretty good. Just google "Graeme Ogilvie wellington" and all his details will pop up. Seemed a decent, level headed guy with a good deal of experience. Best of luck.

    There is info on the Dept of Labour website on how to take a personal grievance and you have a limited period to do it in. When hiring a lawyer you have to be careful that their costs do not exceed the amount of damages
    you may win as in most cases no more than $10,000 is paid out for damages going up to around $15,000 in rare cases. Where there is outstanding pay owing this is paid in addition to the amount you get for damages.
    You do not need to have a lawyer but there is a lot of work involved prepairing a case. You have to keep emotions out of it and present your argument on the bases of technical facts only. Good Luck.

    Hey Paul, sorry to hear about Miss Vicki’s employment woes.

    Sorry I am unable to provide you with any contact names.

    I could only suggest that you take a wonder to the Citizens Advise Bureau as they will have names or contact people which will meet your needs.

    There is an online employment lawyer which may give you a start or head you in the right direction.

    Regards


    Paul

    Thanks but if I was going that way the bare hands approach would be vastly more satisfying ;-)

    I am on the employer side of the table but have you considered contacting a union?
    Have had a few dealings with unions regarding proceedural unfairness in dismisal (Not my doing by the way) and despite how much I hate the "give me more" attitude of some negotiators they do know thier stuff when it comes to personal greivances.
    Unions seem more than happy to take on a new member at the drop of a hat. Not sure if they need to be represented on the site already though or have more than one member. Might be worth a call?

    Big corporates laying off people in the next few weeks. Wonder who that could be?

    If you don't get any names soon I can contact my friend to find hisemployment lawyer's name. He's going through a protracted case with an ex employer and the guy seems good, though my mate doesn't half moan about the cost.
