HR Best Practice is designed for New Zealand employers and human resources advisers. It provides practical tools and guidance to ensure best practices are followed in day-to-day human resources management.

HR Best Practice is available in a handy looseleaf binder. Regular updates ensure the information is kept current and in line with changes in legislation affecting human resources management and best practice guidelines on how to comply.

Effective human resources management is essential to the long term development of any organisation. An organisation must attract and keep the best people, while encouraging the maximum participation and contribution of its employees. HR Best Practice provides practical methods for dealing with basic operational issues, and provides guidelines on how to build productive employment relationships and be a fair and reasonable employer in compliance with the law.

Written in a plain English style it has an emphasis on providing clear statements of the legal situation and spelling out how each step of any process should be undertaken. Use of bullet points and the short paragraph style make the product an extremely valuable resource which can quickly be consulted.

Information on relevant decisions by courts and tribunals is included to illustrate how the law has been interpreted in particular situations, and to provide guidance on any course of action. Sample agreements and other documents are also included.

A “Recent Developments” section provides a quick means of getting updated with new and proposed legislation and important decisions from the courts.
