Dispute Resolution

Employment relations require a greater responsibility on the part of the employer in managing disputes that might arise in an organisation. Employer/employee relations are often under stress.
HRM must act as buffer in avoiding situations that lead to disputes and claims in courts.
Mediation processes help in dispute resolution. Fairness in dealing with the dispute situations helps HRM to stand out from the organisation in which they are part of. The Employment Relations Act enables HRM to avoid disputes and punitive damage claims. Sound legal knowledge will be required to manage employment agreements, which will result in the avoidance of dispute situations.

For further information on disputes resolution, check out the ERA Act and legislative requirements and Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment website listed below.
