Legal Services

When employees test the waters with a personal grievance EMA Legal is here to help. We offer representation in all employment law matters.

EMA Legal provides your best return on investment for legal advice on employment law matters. Our team of lawyers are available to members only and can help solve your tricky issues.
While you may think of lawyers as representing people in court this is far from everything they do. Employers take advantage of the value of the EMA Legal team to help drafting documents such as tailored employment agreements and offers of employment. Additionally they can help with key guidance on difficult issues such as restructuring processes and rock solid performance management plans.
EMA Legal has an excellent track record of success in representing employers in employment matters. This is coupled with a high level of satisfaction by members in the relationship with their representative.
To get in touch with our lawyers, consultants or talk about any of our services please call us on (NZ) 0800 300 362 or (AU) 1800 300 362. We will be happy to discuss your issue and refer you on to the service you require.
