When was the last time your Employment Agreements were updated?
On 1 April 2016 the Employment Standards Legislation Bill was introduced, which aims to prohibit zero-hour contracts along with other amendments to current Acts. The good news for Employer’s is that this Legislation included a grace period for Employment Agreements to be updated. However, the end of this period is fast approaching and ends 1 April 2017. The amendments include zero-hour contracts, availability, secondary employment provisions, cancellation of shifts for shift workers and deductions.
Key things to do to make sure you’re up-to-date;
- Ensure your Agreement has been updated since 1 April 2016 – you can send your Agreement through to us for a complimentary review
- Ask us for a new Agreement or a variation template if your Agreement is outdated
- Ensure all of your Employees have a compliant Agreement, and if not, transition them over to a new one
If you have any questions, or would like a complimentary review of your Agreement - please phone People Passion 09 299 2525.
