Conference on Labour, Employment and Work (LEW Conference)

The Centre for Labour, Employment and Work at Victoria University of Wellington Te Herenga Waka and the Australia New Zealand Third Sector Research network were jointly hosting their conferences in November 2020.

Unfortunately, due to the uncertain environment created by the COVID-19 pandemic we postponed the conference and are now planning towards holding a full conference in November 2022. 

To bridge the gap between the last conference in 2018 and the 2022 conference we have decided to host a one-day LEW Symposium on 24 November 2021 here at Victoria University of Wellington Te Herenga Waka.  

We have received an excellent number and range of abstracts for papers to be presented at the symposium ‘Labour, Employment and Work in New Zealand – current issues and research‘. We will be running four parallel sessions across the day with contributions from and range of organisations and individuals including the NZ Labour Law Society; the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment; Statistics New Zealand; AUT Wellbeing Research Group; The Retirement Commission and Treasury and the Productivity Commission.
