New Zealand Law Society - Law reform submissions

Law reform submissions

One of the Law Society's most valued roles is to provide an informed and reasoned voice for lawyers and for the public on bills referred to select committee and discussion papers from government agencies and other bodies. Read below for our current and recent work.

Current work

Our Law Reform Committees are currently considering the following consultations:

Employment Relations Authority consultation on disposal of records

The Employment Relations Authority is seeking feedback on a draft disposal schedule and draft appraisal report which will identify which records should be retained as public archives, and which records may be destroyed after a period of time, as required by the Public Records Act 2005. The Law Society’s Employment Law Committee will consider providing feedback; to contribute comments, please email Nilu Ariyaratne.
