A Round-Up of New Zealand’s 2021 Labor Law Changes
New Zealand’s government is set to introduce employment reforms that will be implemented throughout 2021. These reforms aim to improve the employer-employee relationship and enhance the working conditions of individuals working in New Zealand. A few of the major employment reforms include an increase in the minimum wage, improvement of pay equity and sick leave extension, fair pay agreements, and reforms for dependent contractors. These reforms have been drafted to ensure worker safety, and these rights are extended to migrant employees as well.
