Dealing with employment redundancy issues and
long term sickness can be stressful for employers,
and there are steps which must be followed to ensure
that you get the process correct. A failure to properly
handle these matters may result in a personal
grievance claim, and that can be expensive, as well
as the cause of wasted time which would be better
spent on productive activities.
In this seminar I will deal with practical problems that
arise in redundancy and sickness issues and take
you through a step by step guide as to what to do...
so you can confidently handle issues that arise and
avoid falling into the potholes..

agreement that guarantees public
access to the popular Crows Nest
The agreement for the subdiv-
ision was finally reached in April
after Wellington City Council
offered to buy land, including the
walking track, as part of the outer

were unavailable for comment.
The agreement means the coun-

arrangement of access to the
walking track, she said.
Ms Williams said the associ-
ation had put in hundreds of
hours' work and did so because
the Crows Nest was an integral
part of Ngaio's identity.
If you've ever seen the Ngaio
signs that welcome people to our
community, one of the knobs on it
is the Crows Nest,'' she said.
The walking track up to it is
another connection in the whole
