Court of Arbitration (New Zealand)


Court of Arbitration (New Zealand)

The Court of Arbitration was a specialist employment court in New Zealand that dealt with industrial relations disputes from 1894 to 1973.

The Industrial Conciliation and Arbitration Act 1894 created a compulsory arbitration system for resolving industrial disputes. Part of this involved the creation of the Court of Arbitration. The court heard industrial disputes, made and interpreted awards, and set minimum standards of employment. The Court also had the power to set and adjust wages. [1]

The Court comprised a Supreme Court Judge, a union representative, and an employers' representative.

These elements continued through a number of successive acts until repeal in 1973.
