This one day beginner/intermediate level employment law course is designed to cover the essential elements of the employment lifecycle for HR practitioners.

Taking a practical approach, we will highlight the issues that HR professionals are typically required to advise on, and providing legal and usable guidance on how to manage these. We will draw on experiences from the group as well as "war stories" from the presenters to make the learning interactive and entertaining.

Attendees will build on their understanding of their obligations as an employer, managing holidays and leave, performance and discipline, managing workplace issues such as bullying, harassment and discrimination, organisational change processes, through to termination of employment, personal grievances & disputes.

Who should attend: Those who are new to HR (or coming back to it after some years away) or line managers with HR responsibilities.

About the Presenters

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.

David has over 9 years' experience working as an employment law specialist in Wellington and London. He can provide advice in respect of the full spectrum of employment-related issues, both contentious and non-contentious and within both the public and private sector.
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

It gives you a great foundation of knowledge to build on and it's a great way to refresh your memory. I came away motivated and excited to attend the advanced employment law course. HR Advisor, Revera.

Friendly and casual but very knowledgeable conversational style. Catered for different learning styles (some people like to talk, some don't!). Excellent overall. The excellent workbook to take away to refer to afterwards - beautifully set out and easy to find stuff. HR Advisor, Self Employed.

I found all topics covered in the course most valuable. It was exactly what I was after to assist with my knowledge on Employment Law. Blair related to his audience extremely well. He managed to keep all of us engaged. Director, Aconsult Ltd

Travelling from out of town?

In response to member demand we are introducing a Travel Discount, available for those members in provincial centres who have to travel to attend one of our professional development courses.

As a rule, 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!

The travel discount is not available for non-members.
