NZ Employment Law for Trans-Tasman Businesses

Know NZ law to reduce your risk of personal grievance claims

Who’s this course for?

If you’re an Australian-based HR professional charged with managing or administering a New Zealand workforce, this introductory to intermediate-level workshop will prove invaluable. It gives a broad outline of New Zealand employment legislation, enabling you to better navigate its provisions. For deeper knowledge, we recommend EMA’s more detailed courses on Human Resources and Employment Relations.


What’s included?
  • An overview of key Acts relevant to employment in NZ
  • Practical applications for consultation and other procedural requirements to reduce your risk of personal grievance claims
  • Understanding and applying good faith principles in employment relationships.


What you’ll learn:
Many organisations today work on both sides of the ditch. It can be easy to assume legislative requirements are pretty much the same, right up to the point where you’re faced with a personal grievance claim. During this informative full-day workshop you’ll learn the key principles of NZ employment law and your legal obligations as an employer, as well as the fundamental differences to the Australian environment. You’ll learn how to apply good faith principles and procedural fairness in an employment relationship to reduce your risk of personal grievances in your business.\
