You would expect our satisfied customers to thank us, but how many advocates do you reckon have companies who have just settled a case will say "Thanks!" to the person who brought the case against them?
We think it's not many, but it definitely applies to Unfair.co.nz, with some of NZ's largest companies willing to say thanks.
These are real emails.
Just a quick note to thank you very much for your efforts against xxxxxxxxxxxx.
I thought you handled yourself with utmost professionalism throughout.
And you know what Andrea, this was never actually about the money, oh sure I may have needed it, but it was actually about showing them that there are right and wrong ways to do things.
I came home yesterday and shared with xxxxxxxxx all the things they had accused me of, she was totally speechless. (I didnt write that :) )
Hi Andrea! I can't thank you enough for what you did for me. I still don't have a job so I wouldn't have survived without your assistance.
Hi there Rowland,
Things have turned out to be good and there was light at the end of the tunnel.
I would like to send a big thank you for your time in assisting me when I had no idea where to go.
Thank you Rowland,
I really appreciate your assistance over this. It's definitely been a tough time, still is, and hangs over me like a black cloud.
Hey rowland payments through this morning thank you for your services you have been great
We've put this right at the bottom, because we don't like to make a big fuss about it.
If an agreement can't be reached, or if an employer refuses to attend mediation, an application must be made to the Employment Relations Authority (ERA) of the Ministry of Business (MBIE)
The cost is $71-56.
Given that when people are fired unreasonably, they generally don't have any spare money, even finding a paltry seventy bucks is beyond many people.
In those cases, we pay, and here's the proof:
We back our ability, we support our customers and we won't let a lack of money stop your case.
If you can find another employment advocate who will do that for you, let us know!
