Employment Law is a comprehensive insight into New Zealand’s current employment law system. First published in 1991, it has become a respected title among employment law practitioners and in employment institutions.

The service is an annotated commentary designed to be a practical guide to the law. It is written and updated by five of New Zealand’s leading employment law practitioners.

Employment Law provides in-depth coverage of the Employment Relations Act 2000 and associated regulations and case law. Other areas of employment law are also covered, including holidays, parental leave, wages, occupational safety and health, state sector and police employment, industry training, unions, privacy, human rights, international instruments, and the common law relating to employment.

Analysis of legislation and case law is supplemented with appendices (including a glossary of employment terms, a sample individual employment agreement, a checklist for dismissal procedures, and comment), legislative and case tables, and a subject index.

Employment Law is among the foremost resources in its area and is a must-have for any lawyer or advocate specialising in employment law. An indispensable, practical guide for lawyers, advocates, the judiciary, corporate counsel and advisors, police, academics, and students.


All information is rigorously checked by our team of legally-qualified editors and researchers.
