Employment Fundamentals - managing the relationship - 1 CPD hour

  • Publication date: May 2015
  • Authors: Bridget Smith, Andrea Twaddle

At the heart of the employment relationship is the principle of good faith, with employees and employers obliged to deal with each other fairly and reasonably at all times.

This module will consider key aspects of the employment relationship including good faith, changing terms, disciplinary action and performance management.

In considering these aspects, it will examine the practical implications of s 103A and s 4 of the Employment Relations Act 2000. Section 103A sets out a test for determining whether an employer’s actions were that of a fair and reasonable employer in the circumstances.

Advice to ensure a fair process will be covered from the perspectives of the employer and employee.

This module will also outline the factors to take into account when establishing whether a file is of sufficient complexity, or of a sensitive nature, to necessitate a referral to an experienced, specialist employment lawyer.

Additionally, it will look at, in what circumstances it would be advisable to recommend that a client engage the services of an independent investigator.
