Getting employment law right can be tough

About Us

Every day well-meaning employers are pinged with expensive personal grievances for even small mistakes. In fact, from published reports we have estimated that businesses in New Zealand spend $150 million every year defending employment dispute claims! This unfortunate reality distracts employers from doing what they do best, and the worry of getting things wrong impacts their well-being.

Compounding on this issue is how expensive it is getting good advice. While lawyers can be of use they are prohibitively expensive, and legal bills rack up fast. Further, while industry associations have some resources to help, more often than not their offerings on employment law and human resource matters are thin.

Our team of deeply experienced employment consultants saw an opportunity to address this in New Zealand. We saw an opportunity to make employment law work for small businesses again. This is why we founded Employer Direct because we want you to succeed.
