Advocates who fight for workers only.

We are supporters of unions and pro-worker organizations in New Zealand.

We strongly suggest that employees seek out and join their relevant unions at the

start of their employment.  


If you are unable to join a union and have an issue that you would like to discuss,

we are here to help you.


Problems in the workplace can be stressful.  Advocates and employment lawyers

are sometimes too expensive to engage for day-to-day issues so they often go unresolved.  

At the Worker's Advocate, we aim to keep costs affordable.
