Tougher Employment Standards

The Government has approved a package of measures to strengthen enforcement of employment standards, including:
  • Tougher sanctions
  • Clearer-record keeping requirements
  • Increased tools for labour inspectors and
  • Changes to the Employment Relations Authority’s approach to employment standards cases

Before the new law comes into force, MBIE will develop an information and education plan to inform businesses, including small businesses, and workers of the changes.
