Changes ahead with Employment Legislation

Wed Nov. 1st 2017

As outlined in the coalition agreement between Labour and New Zealand First on 24 October, the Minimum Wage will be increased from $15.75 to $16.50 an hour in April 2018.

It will then be increased each year until 2020 when it will be $20 per hour. If you have been paying slightly above the minimum wage you need to consider how you will manage employee expectations as they may expect to receive a similar increase.

Get in touch with our team if you need advice.


Thelma worked with me quickly and efficiently on a personal grievance. She dealt with the issues with grace and empathy which gave me the confidence that the issue would be dealt with on my behalf in the most professional manner with an outcome that was fair and reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use Thelma again in the future.
