Australian HR and Employment Law 2024 - Considerations for New Zealand Employers


Employing staff in Australia and New Zealand can pose challenges for employers not familiar with the differences in employment legislation “across the ditch.”

While there are some similarities between Australian and New Zealand employment law, there are also complexities and variations. If these are not properly managed, can have significant legal and financial implications.

This session will be presented by specialist Australian and New Zealand employment lawyers. The topics to be covered include:

  • Minimum entitlements under the Australian National Employment Standards
  • The relevance of modern awards and enterprise agreements
  • Termination of employment and redundancy
  • Key differences with New Zealand law
  • Managing a Trans-Tasman workforce (including relocation and secondments)


Participants will understand the key differences between Australian and New Zealand employment laws (including tips for managing a mobile Trans-Tasman workforce).
