MBIE is responsible for providing employment mediation services under the Employment Relations Act 2000 (the ERA Act). Our vision is to support all New Zealanders to move through disputes and get on with their lives.
We have recently undertaken a review of our services to ensure that our employment mediation service footprint, national reach and delivery of services are organised in a manner that while allowing us to continue to provide high quality mediations are also flexible enough to ensure we can meet demand and customer needs, while being responsibly cost effective.
We currently have experienced, high quality mediators employed within our employment mediation teams and this will not change. We have however identified that there is a need to support and supplement this with high quality, experienced employment mediators in a mixed model approach, utilising employees and service providers. This will allow us to be flexible in responding to changes in demand while ensuring a consistent New Zealand-wide delivery of the high quality mediations expected by our stakeholders.
Our mixed model approach is already in place in five of our centres, and it is now our intent to roll out the model to the Northland and Nelson/Marlborough regions.
