“The fundamental premise underlying the Employment Relations Bill is that the employment relationship is a human relationship, not just a contractual or economic one. Human relationships that function well and effectively are based on mutual trust, confidence and fair dealing..." Margaret Wilson Minster of Labour – New Zealand
