We hope you are taking care of your family and yourselves in these unprecedented times. To help navigate some of the employer work issues that have arisen as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown we thought we would provide some information on employment rights and obligations that you may find useful. In this three-part series we follow one fictional character’s situation with each post separately considering three different issues, including: being made to take annual leave by an employer during lockdown;health and safety obligations of an employer for those working in essential services; andobligations of an employer who is receiving a government wage subsidy for an employee.
In this first episode of NZFreeLaw we introduce the show and hosts lawyer Julia Steenson and non-lawyer Josh Brown. Then, with employment lawyer Ani Bennett we discuss information about contracts for service and contracts of service, 90 day trial periods, personal grievances, recording meetings with your employee/employer, mediation as a restorative outcome, pathways into employment law, thought diversity and much more!
