Department of Labour corrects Air New Zealand


MEDIA RELEASE
18 April 2008
Department of Labour corrects Air New Zealand


The Department of Labour today corrected an assertion in a media release from Air New Zealand relating to the employment of Shanghai-based cabin crews.

The department was responding to a release from the airline that stated that the department had found that Chinese law applied to the agreement between Air New Zealand and the Chinese cabin crew.

“What we said in our briefing to Labour Minister Trevor Mallard was that … “it would appear that Chinese employment law applied …”,” Andrew Annakin, Deputy Secretary – Workplace, said.

“This is an important point of difference, as the Department cannot definitively determine what employment law applies in a particular factual situation, particularly outside New Zealand.” Mr Annakin said.
