ALYN J HIGGINS
I am a Wairarapa based specialist offering advisory and representation services throughout New Zealand.
I have extensive experience advising and representing small and large organisations in all aspects of employment law and industrial relations in both a private practice and in-house capacity.
I also have extensive experience in liquor licensing. As legal adviser for Hospitality New Zealand for almost 10 years I have a deep understanding of the hospitality industry. I have also worked in government and for a leading boutique law firm in Wellington.
I have conducted hundreds of negotiations and mediations for a wide range of clients across New Zealand and appeared successfully before the Employment Relations Authority and Alcohol Regulatory Licensing Authority.
I am a Wairarapa based Human Resources Consultant offering Human Resource advisory services throughout the lower North Island, New Zealand.
I have extensive experience advising and supporting shifts in culture and practice in the way businesses interact and engage with their employees for small, medium and large organisations.
I have worked in government, retail, logistics, timber, local council, education, emergency services, charity and crown entities. These experiences have given me the skills to tailor services to your business needs and your leadership / management style.
Some examples of things I look at: are you an employer of choice or last choice? I can help you shift to be the business all employees want to work for. Are your policies and procedures up to date and practices legal? I can help you ensure you tick all the compliance boxes.
Got tricky situations with your team? I can help you shift behaviours to be the type of work place everyone wants to work at.
We can work together with clients or separately. We get to know you and your circumstances to best support you to be the people leader you want to be and deal with issues your way. We are happy to meet with you to discuss your needs and goals wherever and whenever it suits. We don’t just work 9 to 5.
Please also connect with us on LinkedIn and find us on Facebook to stay up to date.
We both offer high quality advice and representation gained from our various experiences at very reasonable prices.
We can provide estimates for all services. Our fee is likely to be based on the complexity, skill and expertise required to deliver the most effective outcome according to any particular requirements you might have. For ongoing work we will likely give you a fixed hourly rate. We both get satisfaction from meeting your needs in a timely and useful way. If it takes less than 20 minutes, we are unlikely to charge.
We will also follow up any advice by email if requested and provide testimonials if required.
We can provide specialist employment law advice including:
We can provide end to end employee lifecycle advisory and support to your business either inhouse or on an adhoc basis and can include a Business WOF to assess your current practices. This includes:
Advice on all aspects of liquor licensing including:
Preparation and assistance with advocacy at a local and national level including local alcohol polices, compliance consultation and law reform including appearing before select committees.
We would be happy to meet up with you to discuss your needs.
