The Employment Contracts Act (1991), a key component of the structural reforms that have taken place in New Zealand since 1984, is discussed internationally as a model for designing new labour laws. The Act repudiated collective action and bargaining, rejecting almost a century of practice, and transformed unions and workplace relations. In this volume, an American lawyer who has spent several visits to New Zealand studying labour issues, tells how the ECA was passed, analyzes its performance as labour law, a matter of widespread disagreement, and explores its economic, social and legal impact.
