This plain-language guide outlines and explains the laws which govern employment relations – including the duties and obligations of employers and employees, negotiating employment agreements, collective bargaining, health and safety at work, hours of work, pay and conditions, holidays, termination of employment, disputes and grievances, discrimination, information privacy, and much more.

Decisions of the Employment Court, the Employment Relations Authority and other courts and tribunals are used to show how employment laws and agreements are interpreted and applied in real life. The guide is revised annually, so the law and decisions it reports are right up to date.

The New Zealand Employment Law Guide is an essential reference for anyone involved or interested in employment relations or employment law
