Gordon Anderson, 2002
This brief comment on Musashi Pty Ltd v Moore, Employment Court, 9 October 2001 (AC 43A/01) Judge Colgan, focuses on the undesirability of allowing choice of a foreign proper law, as well as a foreign forum, in an employment contract where the work is to be performed in New Zealand. The author proposes legislative intervention to remedy the situation.
Paul Roth, 2000
This overview of recent case law deals with the determination of the proper law of an employment contract, as well the jurisdiction of the Employment Court/Employment Relations Authority and the power to apply foreign law within the relevant statutory context. The author focuses on wrongful dismissal (or associated breach of contract) claims and breach of contract (not associated with a dismissal).
