The Employment Relations Amendment Bill has now passed its third reading, with most of the changes coming into effect on 6 May 2019.
We wanted to thank you for your support during the ‘Fix the Bill’ campaign, and as a result of this the coalition Government did make some changes to the Bill. However, there are significant changes ahead, and we will be running briefing sessions on this new legislation in the new year.
Our Managing Solicitor Diana Hudson talks about ‘performance management and the impact of mental health issues’, and Kirk Hope from BusinessNZ talks about ‘bullying at work’. We would also like to congratulate our long-time member Dr Alistair Newbould of Humanimals Veterinary Hospital who was voted “Vet of the Year.”
We will be closing for the year from lunchtime on Friday 21 December, and re-opening on Monday 7 January.
We would all like to thank you all for your continued support this year, and to wish you and your families a safe and happy Christmas.
