Employment New Zealand website updated

Jul 25, 2016 | News

The aim of the new website is to positively influence the relationships between employers and employees, and to promote safe, fair and harmonious workplaces.

The website provides practical and operational information on the 14 pieces of legislation that relate to employment, including the Employment Relations Act 2000. This information will help employers and employees know what they can do and how they should do it.

Beyond providing a ‘plain English’ version of the legislation, the website includes information on best employment practice as well.

The number of pages has gone down from 1,300 to 300 with an emphasis on easy to understand, non-repetitive content that clearly lays out the rights and responsibilities of both employers and employees.

Along with the refreshed content, employers and employees will have more tools and resources available to them, as well as enhanced search functions.

This website covers areas such as: starting employment, hours and wages, resolving problems, leave and holidays, workplace policies, and ending employment and is well worth using as a resource.
