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.

Based on the law in force on 1 January 2017, the guide covers numerous developments and includes extensive commentary on:

The Health and Safety at Work Act and the demands it now places on persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs).

Employment standards — an area of recent focus by the Government. In particular, the Minimum Wage Act, the Holidays Act and the Wages Protection Act and the recordkeeping that supports them are supported by heavier sanctions for non-compliance.

Amendments to the Parental Leave and Employment Protection Act, which extend the period of paid parental leave to 18 weeks and make the entitlements more flexible to reflect modern society’s diverse range of parenting options and range of working arrangements.
