Welcome to the new Employment New Zealand website!

The Employment New Zealand site is the leading source of information on employment in New Zealand, and the key channel to help employers and employees understand their rights and responsibilities.

The aim of this new website is to positively influence the relationships between employers and employees, and to promote safe, fair and harmonious workplaces.

It provides practical and operational information on the 14 pieces of legislation that relate to employment, including the Employment Relations Act 2000. This information will help employers and employees know what they can do and how they should do it. Beyond providing a ‘plain English’ version of the legislation, the website includes information on best employment practice as well.

There’ll be ongoing information and tool enhancements made to the website to help employees and employers understand their rights and responsibilities, including checklists, letter templates, information guides, and employment practice templates.

If you have any questions or feedback about the new website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
