Essential Employment Law


Our popular one day workshop covers 13 pieces of employment legislation and HOW to apply it in the workplace.

Not only that- you’ll have some fun learning!

Employment lawyers are able to see things as black and white - but in HR it doesn’t work like that. We can’t just give an opinion on what the legislation says and leave the decision to our client. For us, it’s more complicated than that.

The bad news is that this means it’s not just a question of learning the law – but it’s also about learning what HR challenges each piece of legislation raises and different ways you can overcome these!

The good news is that Essential Employment Law teaches you both the legislation and case law, but also how to apply it as an HR professional. Because all of our facilitators are HR people who have to put it in place every day. And we all trained in employment law so know how to comply.

What people have said about attending:


“Lisa understood the differences that exist in both public/private sector. Was able to provide good advice and info about fixed term contracts, Holidays Act & Privacy Act”


“For me the whole day was useful to embed my knowledge – it was an excellent refresher course.”


“Learning about justifications re some of the case law – good to know why a decision was made, course was awesome thank you”


“A fantastic course overall. The fact that I came away with some essential knowledge relating to fixed terms contracts and trial periods (amongst everything else!) meant I could come into work and confidently make a few changes to our IEA's the next day.”


“It is a lot of information, but I feel really well informed”


“Thank you, I feel better able to talk with my managers and give advice more clearly and back up with good rationale.  I really liked how Nikki gave us good examples on how to phrase your advice to your manager without getting them off-side”.


“This was excellent, I feel like I understand the basics a lot better”.


“The seminar was interactive and although professional, was still quite a relaxed environment. The Elephant team really know their stuff and are happy to answer every little niggling question I had during the breaks.”



We help HR teams develop the skills & tools to deliver great HR to their business.

Having now worked with and trained thousands of HR people in NZ and Australia, we know we can help you achieve more! How do we do this?


How the on-line workshop works


We also run an online workshop for those who can’t make it to Auckland or Wellington. This includes watching on demand webinars on the different pieces of legislation, completing some quizzes and case studies and then attending two 1 hour online sessions. These are interactive, and mean you still get to discuss, share and ask questions.  You’ll get sent a copy of the workbook to make notes in as you work through the session. All you’ll then need is a quiet room, an Internet connection, computer and headphones or phone.

It’s as close to being there in person as we can make it!
