Don’t miss the 6th Annual HR Law Masterclass Conference this September, New Zealand’s original & leading employment law event series, featuring case reviews and legal insight on key issues shaping HR

You will gain up-to-the-minute insight on key HR issues, including:
  • Workplace mental health and wellbeing
  • Psychological injury claims, medical evidence and Return-to-Work
  • Leave entitlements, Holidays Act compliance, pay parity & equity
  • Improve your union relations
