  • Equal Opportunity

    Giving all staff and workers an equal chance in the workplace without discrimination against their background, disability or personal characteristics.

    In New Zealand, employment law prevents workers from being discriminated against or treated unfairly based on their age, sex, race, skin colour, religious or political beliefs, marital status, educational background, employment status or disability.

    Employers are required by law to create a workplace that accepts employees from a wide range of backgrounds. Besides this, equal opportunity also makes smart business sense, as it can help diversify the skillset of the business, improve brand reputation and increase staff loyalty.
