Employment Law Services:
Navigating the Complexities with Confidence
I provide strategic advice and practical solutions to help employers keep out of trouble and manage disputes. From ensuring compliance with employment law to addressing tricky issues such as performance management, misconduct, restructuring and redundancy, and personal grievances, I can guide you through the process.
I advise and support employees and contractors who want to know their rights, understand their options and if necessary, raise a claim.
Resolving Issues with Fairness and Professionalism
I have a specialist expertise in investigating employment complaints in the workplace and hold a certification from AWI, the Association of Workplace Investigators. My work includes supporting people involved in disciplinary and regulatory processes. I undertake Code of Conduct investigations for local authorities and operate independent complaints management services for a range of organisations including New Zealand Rugby.
When I am handling complaints, I bring a compassionate and fair approach to finding effective resolutions, while preserving the mana of the people involved.
Training and Public Speaking:
Sharing Knowledge, Inspiring Change
Education and a growth mindset are vital for fostering a healthy work environment. I am a sought-after conference presenter, entertaining speaker, and engaging MC. I deliver training modules and educational sessions to leadership, managers, HR professionals, and teams.
I equip organisations with plain English, up-to-date policies and guidelines they need to create a healthy culture of respect and inclusivity. Through my years of dealing with sensitive claims, I have particular expertise in addressing sexual harassment and bullying, including through training. I can empower people to have difficult conversations safely.
