Employment and Immigration

Immigration rules relating to hiring employees are complex and the penalties under the Immigration Act 2009 are considerable. It is not worth taking the risk and getting it wrong. Brookfields' employment law team can help ensure that you comply with immigration law and policy.

Whether you are trying to obtain temporary visas to transfer overseas workers to New Zealand to work on a specific project or are looking to recruit top level executives from overseas, we can advise you on the correct procedure, highlight potential pitfalls and help with any specific employment issues.

In the event that you have got it wrong and are facing a prosecution, we can help you make the right decisions to lessen the impact, including assisting you in defended hearings.
