If your New Zealand business has employees or is looking to recruit employees or contractors, it is essential to understand employment law. 

Employment law relates to employers, employees and contractors. It can be a highly emotional and complicated area to manage, particularly if your business seeks to terminate an employment contract or manage a performance issue.

When hiring an employee, you need to know whether they should be on an award, and which award applies. You should also provide a correctly drafted employment contract that:

  • complies with relevant legislation;
  • protects your business with non compete, non-solicitation and non-interference clauses;
  • has clearly defined termination of employment clauses, setting out the circumstances that can lead to ending employment.

LegalVision’s employment lawyers have a wealth of knowledge and experience helping businesses with employment matters. They have channelled this knowledge into a series of articles that will assist you with understanding your employment law obligations.
