Section 110 of the Employment Act prohibits employers from discriminating against workers because of their participation (or not) in a union or other workers` organization. The Employment Act recognizes an “inherent power in labour relations” and encourages collective bargaining (section 3) to close the power gap between employers and workers. It also recognizes “the role of unions in promoting the collective employment interests of their members” in Section 12. Other important recognitions contained in the law are:[4] Unfair negotiations are when a worker is severely disadvantaged when negotiating an individual employment contract. At the end of the 30-day period, the worker and employer are free to negotiate and agree on different business terms in the employment contract if the worker has not become a member of the union at the end of the 30-day period. The most important of these statutes is the Labour Relations Act 2000 passed on 2 October 2000 (the “ER Act”). The Employment Act repealed the Employment Contract Act 1991 (ECA). When it was adopted in 1991 and thereafter, the Court attracted international attention, as it adopted a conventional contractual approach to the employment relationship and based on the assumption that employers and workers have the same bargaining power. While opinions remain divided on the value of the ER Law in some sectors, the prevailing view is that the latter law introduces a much more orthodox and moderate approach to labour market regulation. The law of the ER is a big part of mediation.

Wherever there is a working relationship, parties are encouraged to try to resolve it through discussions between them. A problem with the working relationship can be anything that causes a work relationship problem, such as a personal complaint. B, a dispute over the expiry of an employment contract or the right to a violation of a legal right. If the parties are unable to resolve the problem themselves, each party can benefit from the assistance of a Ministry of Labour mediator. Many of the most important provisions apply as soon as a working relationship has begun. This implies a fundamental duty to act in good faith and to communicate openly. Other provisions, regardless of the working relationship, operate continuously and are more declarative (as in the case of trade union activities) or administrative (as in the context of the work of the Labour Relations Agency). Workers are entitled to four weeks of paid annual leave at the end of each year of employment. [16] New Zealand also has 11 annual public holidays and a worker is entitled to one day`s pay leave if the worker would normally work. [17] When a worker organizes a public holiday, the worker must be paid at least one and a half hours for the work time done and is also entitled to another paid leave. After 6 months of employment, a worker is entitled to 5 days of sick leave in case of paid pay and bereavement. The fee varies from:[18] Collective agreements must have an expiry date of no more than three years.
