WHAT to expect

New Zealand Employment Law

The Employment Relations Act 2000 provides statutory organisations with exclusive jurisdiction over employment issues and lays forth the fundamental legal foundation for employment interactions. The Minimum Wage Act 1983, the Human Rights Act 1993, the Holidays Act 2003, and the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 among others, also shape more specific areas of employment law.

Payroll in New Zealand

In New Zealand, the payroll frequency is set in the employment contract by mutual agreement between the employer and employee. The most common payment frequency is once per month.

There is no mandated requirement for a 13th salary payment in New Zealand.

New Zealand has 3 different tiers of national minimum wage depending on the type and level of role.

Terminations in New Zealand

New Zealand does not have at-will termination, and dismissals must be for cause. The type of contract, reason for termination, terms of the employment contract and applicable collective agreements govern the specifics of the termination process. Except for gross misconduct, employers must give adequate notice before terminating employment.

We find that most of our clients are in the Tech, IT, Finance and Professional Services industries. However, we have acquired the skills, knowledge and experience to help all industries across the globe.

As a private company, we’re not beholden to shareholders or asset-shredding Private Equity targets. We aim to build long-term relationships with our clients. At Agility EOR, our approach is that we never forget that our business is all about people. Our Employer of Record solutions are tailored to each requirement, not a one-size-fits-all tech platform. We do the right thing by our clients and by the laws of each country we operate in. And we believe in openness; if we don’t feel we can offer you the best solution for a specific territory, we’ll say so. 

We pride ourselves on our personable-approach so once you enter your new employees details into our dedicated platform, we’ll arrange a call with you to go through the details of the employment contract where together we can review and amend to your requirements. We liaise directly with your employee to build a rapport and obtain the necessary information to hire them compliantly, and set them up ready for their first payroll.

We never stop delivering! Even if you’re employee has been onboarded and is happily working for you and being paid each month, we’re here to partner with you whenever you or your employees need us. Even your ex-employees may need our assistance for tax documents, proof of employment requests etc… Our service never stops!
