Get ready for health and safety law changes
New health and safety (H&S) law is expected to be passed later this year and come into effect several months after that. While not all the changes are yet confirmed, enough is known for you to check what – if any – action your business may need to take.
If you have good H&S policies and practices already in place, you're in a good position to stay compliant when the law changes. If not, there's plenty of time to rectify this to make sure you are up to speed with the new regime.
Google is shaking up search recommendations
Do you need to be worried about Google's latest shake up? Yes you do!
With more and more people are using their smartphones to access the internet, Google is about to change the way its influential search engine recommends websites on smartphones. The shift is expected to sway where millions of people shop, eat and find information. It is really putting the "if you are not embracing technology, you will be left behind" mantra into practice.
The revised formula for search engine rankings, scheduled to be released Tuesday (local time), will favour websites that Google defines as "mobile-friendly."

Serious Allegations Require Higher Standard of Proof
A recent judgment of the Employment Court Edwards v. The Board of Trustees of Bay of Islands College  NZEmpC 6 (dated 3 February 2015) dealt with the dismissal of a school Principal for alleged serious misconduct. The Employment Court overturned the original Employment Relations Authority decision in favour of the school and held that the dismissal was unjustifiable. In doing so, the Court commented on a number of issues surrounding disciplinary investigations, and on how the outcome of an investigation should be expressed.
