The New Zealand Employment Law Guide contains practical and easy-to-read coverage of employment law, together with precise references to statutory instruments and case law. It provides a comprehensive overview of an expanding and changing field of law, as well as directions for further investigation of specific issues. The Guide discusses employment law from both individual and collective perspectives. It covers the law on employment relations, employment agreements, working hours, remuneration, disputes, grievances, termination of employment, health and safety, discrimination and privacy. Significant decisions of the Employment Relations Authority and the courts are used to show how employment law is interpreted and applied in real life. A model individual employment agreement is included for readers to adapt to their needs, plus an outline collective agreement and the text of official codes of practice. This edition is based on the law in effect at 1 January 2013, together with key case decisions and developments in practice to that date.
