Using a representative
You can be represented in the Employment Relations Authority by any person or organisation you choose.
A representative may help by:
- giving advice on your employment problem
- helping you prepare for an investigation in the Employment Relations Authority
- representing you in meetings with the Authority member.
You can be represented by:
- a union
- an employers' association
- a lawyer, either through a law firm or a community law office
- an employment relations advocate
- a family member
- a friend.
The Authority member will run the process so that no one is disadvantaged if they choose not to have a representative.
