Review of the Department of Labour's interactions with Pike River Coal Limited
4 July 2011
This internal operational review was requested by the Chief Executive of the Department of Labour and carried out on an independent basis. The Department assisted in its preparation by providing documentation we asked for and by making available any staff we wished to speak to. A number of former Departmental staff and other entities we believed had a contribution to make to the review were approached for their input. Most obliged and we have noted material exceptions.
The views and conclusions of this report are solely those of the reviewers and they do not necessarily represent the views of the Department of Labour. The statements made by Department of Labour staff and quoted in the review are the views of those individuals and should not be taken as representing the views of the Department of Labour.
