Everyone who is in business needs to be aware of the Commerce Act’s requirements. You also have a commercial interest in ensuring that your competitors comply with the Act.

If you deal with people in your business, you need to comply with the Human Rights Act 1993. This Act deals with the issue of discrimination. Discrimination is defined in the Act to mean treating people differently because of their sex, marital status, religious belief, ethical belief, colour, race, ethnic or national origins, disability, age, political opinion, employment status, family status or sexual orientation. It is unlawful to discriminate against someone on any of these grounds.
