What are the laws in New Zealand that are designed to protect the rights of a worker?

There are several statutes. The main one is the employment relations act 2000, which sets out the rights and duties employers and employees have with regards to each other. The wages protection act 1983 sets out minimum wage, and rights concerning being paid on time, and in cash, and how an employer cannot arbitrarily deduct wages from an employee without their consent The human rights act 1993 protects against discrimination in employment on grounds such as gender, ethnicity, race, national origin, political orientation, etc Basically, the Employment Relations Act (ERA2000) sets out individual rights against an employer, so that an employer may not simply dismiss an employee without having reasonable cause, or without following correct procedure.

Theres no regulations barring diaries, however uttign down operational information is discouraged, and if the dairies can be captured or stolen while on operational deloyment the soldiers involved can be charged and brought to trial on charges of providing aid or information to the enemy.

International High Courts

What court in New Zealand is higher than the Supreme Court?

No Court is higher than the current Supreme Court.

However, in older cases, the "Supreme Court" it refers to may be the equivalent of the current "High Court", as it was called then. In that case the Court of Appeal and Privy Council were higher authority.

Emigration and Refugees

Where are the best places to emigrate to?

That depends on what you are looking for and where you are emigrating from. Costa Rica and some well chosen parts of Mexico have become quite popular with Americans wanting to retire abroad. Most Americans are likely to find Western Europe expensive. Britons have a soft spot for Spain and Greece, and some of those who want to live cheaply emigrate to Bulgaria. Denmark and Switzerland are widely rated #1 and #2 ... but the Swiss are very choosy about granting residence permits.

What happens if you give false evidence in court?

A person who knowingly gives false testimony in court is guilty of the crime of perjury. Even if the person has not been deposed or sworn in the traditional sense, the law presumes all such testimony given to be done so under oath and under the penalty of perjury. Perjury is a serious offense and if found guilty the person can be incarcerated and/or fined under state or federal law. Under federal guidelines if convicted the penalty is a maximum of 5 years in a federal facility and a $5,000 fine. States establish their own laws concerning the offense.

New Jersey law concerning the legal age at which a child can be left home alone?

The age at which a child can be left at home alone is only legislated in two states, Maryland and Illinois. The legal check is whether or not the child is safe and has the ability to take care of themselves. Most authorities agree that leaving a 12 year old alone at home for an hour or two is acceptable, but they should not be responsible for other children.

What is New Zealand's crime rate?

New Zealand is seen as a safe place for tourists to visit. This is a bit of an illusion, most likely due to its relatively low population, as its Total crime rate per capita is actually the second highest in the world - second only to Dominica. Its actual crime rate is 105.881 crimes per 1,000 people. Some comparisons are listed below: * United Kingdom: 85.5517 per 1,000 people * USA: 80.0645 per 1,000 people * Switzerland: 36.1864 per 1,000 people * Russia: 20.5855 per 1,000 people * India: 1.63352 per 1,000 people The difference is that India, for example, has a huge population, and many crimes probably don't even go reported due to poverty and lack of policing in poverty-stricken areas. New Zealand has a much higher standard of living, and far fewer people, so its crime rate seems disproportionately high. For further comparisons of New Zealand and other countries, see the link below.

Does New Zealand have laws or rituals?

Yes.

New Zealand has an informal constitution in the same style as Britain and Israel (as opposed to the United States or France which have formal Constitutions). As for rituals, most New Zealanders are Christian and follow (to a limited extent) the Christian traditions and holidays (especially Christmas). As for the indigenous Maori, they are permitted tribal law and allowed to practice their tribals rites on their Tribal Territories which operate similarly to those in the United States or Australia.

What are the New Zealand hunting laws?

Firstly, get authoritative information from NZ Police, and Department of Conservation (DoC). The below is only rough guidance.

Of the 'open country', this is controlled by either the occupier (in the case of farm land), or DoC (above). By and large, hunting is prohibited in built-up areas.

In New Zealand, any weapon capable of propelling a projectile is classed as a 'firearm' - even if no 'fire' is involved. And for which a Firearms Permit is required - obtainable from NZ Police.

Permission to enter land for the purpose of hunting should be got from the 'occupier' or from DoC, as appropriate.

Most feral animals have no hunting limits. Deer, chamois, thar, rabbits, mustelids, goats, possums and so on.

But many farms rear deer and goats, so just because you see a deer or goat, you aren't necessarily free to have a crack.

Game birds, pheasant, quail, ducks, swan etc have a bag limit and a particular season for allowed hunting. And hunting permits for these are necessary.

The short answer is no, unless you have a firearms collector's licence. A fully automatic weapon is a restricted weapon and unless you have the correct licence you are not allowed to import them or own them. The collector's licence is difficult to get and restrictive.
