Employer: Fee Options

As I tell my employee clients: Costs should never be a barrier to receiving quality legal advice. I promote "access to justice" with ethical-based pricing options. In providing transparent fee structures, I aim to assist you in your decision-making process. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require further information on any of the fee options. 

I am a "people" focused representative. The law doesn't change whether you are an employee or an employer; and neither does my advice. I provide a reasonable and pragmatic approach to employment matters, and aim to provide you with the knowledge you need to succeed with your employment relationships.

Business Meeting

Option One: Free Initial Consultation

I recognise that sometimes, employers simply need a steer in the right direction. For this reason, I provide a free initial consultation to discuss employment issues.

In these conversations, my aim is to provide you with the tools you need to make an informed decision about whether you are able to handle the situation yourself, or whether you should consider seeking legal representation. 

If you require further representation, you can engage me on any of the other options.

Option Two: Hourly Rate

An hourly rate option will be appropriate if you require representation during the employment relationship.

This can include representation at a formal meeting, or if you require a letter drafted for your employee. 

The average rate for employment law services can range between $300 - $500 + GST.

My hourly rate is $200 + GST

Option Three: Fixed Fee

A fixed fee option will be appropriate if you require assistance for any of the situations listed in "option two", but you are not confident that you will be able to meet the costs associated with the hourly rate. 

The fixed fee option can be a great alternative for clients who prefer to have certainty of costs.

At my discretion, I may agree to fix a fee on a "pay what you can afford" basis.

Option Four: Yearly Subscription

I offer a yearly subscription service, which will provide you with unlimited employment law advice and representation for the period of 12-months.

This option is only $6,000 + GST per annum; paid either in full at the start of the service, or in 12 equal monthly payments of $500 + GST. 

This is a payment option that I am currently trialing. As such, it is only open to the first six employer clients, who have less than 20 employees.

If your business has more than 20 employees, and you are interested in this option; please call me to discuss this further.
