Queenstown Workplace Law: Practical Workshops

Health and Safety – Duty Holders’ Compliance

There are a number of significant legal risks that can arise when dealing with the complexities that surround the new health and safety law in New Zealand.

We will be running two practical health and safety workshops, aimed at ensuring that duty holders have an awareness of work related health and safety issues in their business, along with providing practical guidance to ensure their legal duties are being complied with.

There will be two separate workshop aimed specifically at:

  • “Officers” of PCBUs – those people that have ‘influence and control’ over the management of the business (CEOs/GMs/Directors
  • Non-Officers of PCBUs – those people whose position involves health and safety as a key aspect.

These workshops are focused on helping you understand the duty holders’ health and safety obligations, and how you can help the PCBU comply with its duties in managing health and safety in a practical sense.

These workshops are designed to benefit Directors/Trustees, CEOs/GMs, COOs, Management, HR, health and safety representatives, or anyone with an interest in work health and safety.

The workshops are practical, engaging and informative, providing attendees with real-world examples arising out of both our recent experience in health and safety and the cases that have been decided to date.

Employment Law – Employee Minimum Entitlements

Every employee in New Zealand is entitled to minimum entitlements in their employment, including holidays, wages, breaks, appropriate working arrangements and a safe work environment

These are the very basics of employment law, and it is the responsibility of the employer to both understand what these minimum entitlements are and to provide these to the employee in a manner that is compliant with the law.

However, many employers are continuing to get it wrong, resulting in personal grievances, wage arrears and breach of contract claims. A number of businesses are being investigated by the Labour Inspectorate, resulting in enforceable undertakings, large penalties, damaging publicity and, in some cases, being restricted from hiring migrant employees.

This practical and interactive workshop looks at the standard employee entitlements every employer must address, how to ensure that you remain compliant, the practical impact of recent changes to the ERA, and how employers should respond if they breach an employee’s minimum entitlements related to their employment.

Business owners, CEOs/GMs, HR professionals, directors, management and anyone with an interest in employment matters would benefit from attending.
