Meeting employment and immigrations laws

To determine that an employer meets New Zealand employment and immigration laws we’ll look to see they:

  • pay employees at least the minimum, or industry standard, wages
  • offer at least the minimum required by law for holiday and special leave
  • meet the requirements of New Zealand law that protect the safety and health of workers
  • meet any other requirements of New Zealand law that apply to employers for particular occupations
  • only employ people who are lawfully allowed to work in New Zealand.
