On 6 March 2015 the Employment Relations Act is changing. Here are the 6 key changes:
1. Refinements to employers’ disclosure obligations
The duty of good faith in section 4 will be amended to extend the circumstances in which an employer may refuse to disclose information to an employee whose position is being restructured.
Employers will be entitled to withhold confidential information about a person other than the affected employee, but only if it involves unwarranted disclosure of the affairs of that other person.
This amendment addresses the conflicting obligations to disclose personal information under the Act and the duty not to disclose personal information under the Privacy Act.
