Employment Law Reinstatement – the primary remedy - 4 August 2021 (On Demand)


Everything you need to know about the remedy of reinstatement, focusing on recent case law decisions and developments, and its implications

Since 2018, reinstatement has once again been the primary remedy for an employment relationship dispute.

This has come into sharp focus with recent judicial decisions such as Humphrey v Canterbury District Health Board (Employment Court) and Sinnott v Minter Ellison Rudd Watt (Employment Relations Authority). If you don’t have time to study the recent cases, make sure you attend to ensure you are up to date.

The webinar will also consider the legislative underpinning of reinstatement, the difference between interim and permanent reinstatement and the application of the legal test for establishing interim reinstatement. Further, it will consider the practical implications of an employee seeking (and obtaining) reinstatement, as well as the legal mechanisms available for enforcing reinstatement decisions.


4 August 2021


Attendees will learn:

  • An in-depth understanding of the primary remedy of reinstatement, whether on an interim or permanent basis
  • Key points from recent case law


This webinar is targeted at professionals at all levels who advise clients or their own employers/businesses on employment relationships and their issues.
