  • Minimum Employee Rights

    New Zealand has a comprehensive range of employment laws and legislations to help keep the workplace fair. Under New Zealand employment law, all employers and employees (i.e. full-time, part-time, casual, fixed-term) are entitled to the same minimum employee rights across the board.

    These employee rights guarantee all workers the right to a fair minimum wage, leave entitlements, rest and meal breaks, public holidays and much more. No employment agreement or contract can offer less than the minimum employee rights.
