Parliament keeps amending the more than 30 statutes which form the main body of New Zealand's employment law, and courts and tribunals continue to interpret and apply the law in a wide variety of circumstances. If you need to keep up to speed, the 2010 edition of our annual Employment Law Guide is a must. Written in plain language, the guide contains detailed discussions of the law governing employment relations, employment agreements, working hours and remuneration, disputes, grievances, termination of employment, health and safety, discrimination, and privacy. There are also model individual and collective employment agreements. Packed with useful, practical information on all aspects of employment relations and the workplace, this comprehensive resource offers easy access to the growing body of employment law - for employers, employees, HR and employment relations specialists, union officials and members, lecturers and students.
