About the Presenter
Blair has over 20 years' experience advising both public and private sector clients on employment matters. He has worked in-house and externally and his clients appreciate his legal know-how combined with his pragmatism that only someone who has worked as an in-house employment relations specialist can provide.
Ros is a specialist employment lawyer with over 20 years' experience in employment relations and human resources. She has considerable experience, advising, assisting and representing a wide variety of clients in a range of employment related issues.

About Dundas Street

Dundas Street has a team of 7 specialist employment lawyers, providing the full range of advice from performance management and disciplinary matters to complex contract and industrial disputes. Their point of difference is that they have worked at the coal face and understand the practical issues facing employers and apply that to provide solution focussed advice. They have a strong client base both in Wellington and Nationally, acting primarily for Corporate and Government employers.

Testimonials

Overall, a really good course. Enjoyed every minute of it! Blair did a fantastic job at keeping the audience engaged and making sure the content was interesting and relateable. Anon.

As with most courses, the content is usually great, but it's the real life stories and anecdotes, that take a good course and make it great. Blair has stories and anecdotes by the bucketful, they really do help put a real life spin on the processes, procedures and legalese of the termination process. Anne, People and Commercial Manager

Terms & Conditions

All of our professional development courses are subject to our terms and conditions.

Travelling from out of town?

In response to member demand we are introducing a trial offering for our 2019 March course offerings.

Our new Travel Discount is available for those members in provincial centres who have to travel to attend one of our professional development courses.

As a rule of thumb if you have to travel far enough to book a flight/hotel room to be able to attend the course, HRINZ will offer you a course discount to assist with these costs: $250 for 1 day courses. To enquire about this discount or if you're unsure about eligibility please contact us.

This has been introduced as an initiative which will hopefully enable our members in regional areas to attend our excellent workshops! We will evaluate this offer in March to see whether we can extend it into other courses in 2019.

The travel discount is not available for non-members.
