A leading industry event is currently underway at Auckland’s Pullman Hotel where several prominent employment lawyers will be offering their expert advice to New Zealand’s HR professionals.

Buddle Findlay partner Sherridan Cook also took to the stage this morning where he discussed the “fiendishly difficult” Holidays Act update and clarified a number of ambiguous issues around parental leave.

Other topics set to be discussed on the day cover the Health and Safety at Work Act, workplace investigations and mental health and absence management – among others.
