The New Zealand Labour Law Society was established by New Zealand attendees at the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law XIX World Congress in Sydney in 2009. The goal of the Society is to provide a forum for research, ideas and discussion about labour and employment law (broadly defined).
The current Members of the Managing Committee are:
Co-chair persons: Dr Amanda Reilly, Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington
and Professor Annick Masselot, Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha- Canterbury University
Treasurer: Yvonne Oldfield, Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington
Secretary: Dr Dawn Duncan, Te Whare Wānanga o Ōtākou- Otago University
Representative to the International Society for Labour and Social Security (Asia Pacific Vice President) Professor Gordon Anderson, Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington

Mr Graeme Colgan, Barrister
Dr Andrew Dallas, Chief of the Employment Relations Authority
Ms Avalon Kent, Te Pukenga Here Tikanga Mahi- the Public Service Association
Ms Clare Abaffy, Employment Court of New Zealand

The Society operates as a volunteer powered network with limited resources rather than as a formally incorporated Society. It is intended to be inclusive and individuals who support the goals of the Society who would like to become actively involved are invited to make themselves known to members of the committee.
