There will be major changes to New Zealand employment law from 6 March 2015 when the Employment Relations Act 2014 comes into effect. Employees and employers will need to know what the changes are and how those changes will affect them.

Key changes include:
  • Extending the right to request flexible working arrangements to all employees
  • How employers and employees should agree on rest and meal breaks
  • Establishing a process for the transfer of employees in some industries if there is a restructure in the business or a change in business owner
  • Clarifying the confidential information that employers are obliged to give to affected employees in dismissal or redundancy situations
  • Changes to collective bargaining: reaching new collective agreements, opting out of multi-employer bargaining, removing the 30 day rule for new, non-union employees and allowing pay deductions of employees who take part in partial strikes
  • Setting time frames for the Employment Relations Authority to make determinations in an employment dispute. 
View the full suite of changes on MBIE’s Labour Relations website.
