Changes in Employment Law

The Caudwells employment law team is busy assisting clients in a wide range of employment law issues including preparing for the Employment Relations Bill, which is expected to come into law from 1 October 2000.  This will have a major impact for many people, as employers or employees.

What’s happening with Legal Aid

The Government is revamping the legal aid scheme and expects the new regime to come into effect on 1 October 2000.  This is likely to see the establishment of the “Legal Sources Agency”, a Government agency responsible for making decisions on eligibility for legal aid assistance.  The revamping may change the level of involvement Caudwells (and other law firms) has with legal aid.


Caudwells acts for many clients who have suffered injury by accident and who are concerned that they have not been receiving their rightful level of ACC compensation.  In several cases this year, Caudwells have been successful in securing significant major lump sum payments from ACC.  Caudwells’ specialists in ACC are based in our Dunedin office.


Caudwells holds regular seminars on a range of current legal topics, which our clients are welcome to attend, free of charge.  Recent seminars have focussed on The Employment Relations Bill, ACC legislation and legal compliance requirements for new/small businesses.

Caudwells also offer in-house seminars or workshops on specialists legal topics businesses.  Contact Conway Powell (General Manager at Caudwells e-mail if you would like to arrange a legal seminar/workshop specially suited for your business.


Caudwells welcomes new solicitor Helen Scott to the Dunedin office.  Helen is working in the litigation team headed by senior Litigation Partner, Frazer Barton.
