Considering redundancies? Make sure you follow the workplace change process to reduce the risk of a personal grievance. Redundancy should only happen after all redeployment options have been exhausted. Head to Employment NZ or Wolters Kluwer HR resources for more information.

Workers on call? Remember zero-hour contracts no longer exist. If you plan to have staff on call, you must:
  • give them at least some guaranteed hours of work
  • specify the notice period that applies to cancellation of a shift, and
  • provide reasonable compensation for time on call or when a shift is cancelled outside the notice period.
