The Employment Relations Act

The Employment Relations Act 2000 prohibits discrimination on 13 grounds and has specific provisions related to racial and sexual harassment. An employee can also bring a personal grievance claim under ‘unjustifiable disadvantage’ or ‘unjustifiable dismissal’ and frame the claim around the already recognised duties implicit in the employment relationship, such as the duty to provide a safe workplace, and the duty of trust and confidence.
