Employment Law 2022 – Whistleblowing & Privacy - 3 November 2022 (On Demand)


The new Protected Disclosures Regime and Privacy Issues in Employment Law


The long-awaited Protected Disclosures (Protection of Whistleblowers) Act 2022 came into force on 1 July 2022, repealing and replacing the Protected Disclosures Act 2000.

This webinar will help ensure that you and your clients understand the key changes to New Zealand’s whistleblowing legislation, including:

  • the extended definition of “serious wrongdoing”;
  • the enhanced ability to report serious wrongdoing; and
  • the introduction of a new ground of personal grievance.


Privacy issues in employment are many and varied. We will consider issues such as the following:

  • What personal information an employer is and is not entitled to collect from its employees;
  • How to uphold employee privacy obligations (for example, around the use and disclosure of personal information) with reference to the Information Privacy Principles of the Privacy Act 2020;
  • Protecting the privacy of job applicants; and
  • The extent to which an employer can undertake surveillance of its employees.


3 November 2022


Upon completion of the webinar, attendees will be equipped with:

  • An up to date knowledge of the updated protected disclosures regime
  • An in-depth understanding of a wide range of privacy-related employment issues


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