Good Faith in the Time of COVID-19
Amanda Reilly (Victoria University of Wellington), Good Faith in the Time of COVID-19, 47 New Zealand J. Emp. Rel. 2 (2022):
This article discusses some key legal developments related to Covid-19 and employment law. It considers both those related to the economic impact of Covid-19 and those related to vaccination requirements. Some legal issues which arose were specific to the circumstances of the Covid19 pandemic while others raise more broadly applicable questions which are yet to be resolved. One very clear thread that emerges is that the need for employers to consult and engage with employees in good faith was not negated by the fact of a public health crisis and national state of emergency.
