The Human Rights Commission is an independent Crown entity charged with the administration of the Human Rights Act 1993.

In December 2001 Parliament made significant changes to the Human Rights Act. These changes affected both the Human Rights Commission and the Office of the Race Relations Conciliator.

We also provide you with a direct link to the Government legislation site where you can look up ALL Acts of Parliament and Regulations and Rules. An Act is also known as a Statute. A Regulation is also sometimes known as a Rule. This Government legislation site is still going through some teething problems. But you will be able to access all legislation and find specific Acts and Rules and individual sections.

Local & Private Acts

In the new Commission there is a Race and Ethnic Relations Unit.

There is also a full-time Race Relations Commissioner who provides leadership and advice on race and ethnic issues to the Commission.

The grounds of race, colour and ethnic or national origin have always been covered by the Human Rights Act 1993.

If people experience discrimination on any of these grounds they continue to be fully protected by the Act and should contact the Commission for assistance.

"I am a retired Solicitor from Kent in England and the $45 I spent on your site was really helpful because I am intending settling in New Zealand and your "one stop shop" was a real boon to me. Thanks again. Arnold T. Devon, England"

"The best topic I have seen so far. Everything I needed. My lawyer said I needed to pay in $2000 to get the thing started. I did it myself. It took some effort but I got there. He did not defend it and now, thanks to Netlaw and the Court staff, I have my Order from the Court in my hand. Money well spent (Identity withheld) Auckland - June 2007"
"Excellent documents and access to the precise law.The Court staff were helpful. Gayle. Coromandel."
"Really useful. One letter (and some draft documents) from me did the trick. I did not need to go near a lawyer. The "other" person was my partner's "ex" and she followed me to work almost every day threatening me but not in a criminal way The Police said she had not committed a crime. My letter worked. She has not done it since but my response looked really professional. Thanks - Barbara - Tauranga "

"Just what I wanted. I wandered around and around my search engines and could not get a document to download. Netlaw provided it! Sara. Hamilton. June 2007"
"Excellent. I found it easy too. I also looked at the Harrassment topic. It was very easy to understand. A local cop served the Trespass notice for me. He said they don't do it all the time but in my circumstances (urgency) the police were prepared to help. But your topic allowed me to do my own Notice and I really felt better for sticking up for myself. Donna - North Shore June 2007"
"Helpful for me. Thanks - Lee - Harwood"
"Helpful and straightforward. I like you Trespass Notice and easy tips for service etc. Hone. Auckland"
