Employment Law Guide New Zealand 2018

Author(s): Richard Rudman Employment Law Guide New Zealand 2018


The 2018 edition of this practical plain-language guide outlines the major changes to employment law and employment relations proposed by the new Labour-led government. It reports the first court decisions made under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, the very first involving penalties of $100,000 and, another, creating bands of culpability to determine penalties. The guide also contains key decisions of the Employment Court and the Employment Relations Authority from 2017 on topics as diverse as stress and bullying, workplace intellectual property, misuse of hazardous substances, the levying of premiums for giving employment, and availability clauses.

It is an essential reference for employers, employees, managers, HR and ER specialists, recruitment consultants, lawyers, students and anyone else involved or interested in this dynamic field of law.
