Written in plain language, it outlines an employer’s duties, obligations, risks and options relating to recruitment, training, payroll, income tax, grievances, holidays and many other employment areas, with comprehensive indexes to help you find quick answers to your questions.

Subscribers to the handbook also receive the New Zealand Employers Bulletin, published 10 times annually and emailed in PDF format. This includes a topical feature written by specialist employment law firm Kiely Thompson Caisley, a legislation update, summaries of interesting cases, and answers to real-life questions asked by employers.

The handbook assists in compliance with the law without being too legalistic.  There is, however, reference to key cases which illustrate the law or procedure. Legislation is not reproduced in full but the relevant sections are referred to where necessary and there is commentary on:
