A raft of changes in employment law will happen over the next 18 months and small businesses in particular are being advised to take note.
Employment standards, and health and safety reforms, will introduce new compliance obligations for employers and the consequences for those caught flouting responsibilities could be disastrous.
Dundas Street Employment Lawyers partner Susan Hornsby-Geluk said small businesses in particular would need to get up to speed with new legislation.
Compliance with new minimum standards under Employment Standards Legislation Bill would require employers to have far more robust processes around record keeping.
The hospitality industry and primary industries such as dairy and farming historically had poor record keeping, she said.

Good morning everyone.
Transitioning to a low carbon economy and making the most of technology are significant themes in both my energy and transport portfolios.
New Zealand faces transport and energy challenges. We want to continue to grow our economy and help New Zealanders to prosper. This means we need secure and affordable energy, and a transport system that meets people’s needs. At the same time, we have to reduce our carbon emissions.
I believe the potential of energy and fuel efficiency remains largely untapped. In many cases, the main barrier preventing people taking action is a lack of awareness and information. By increasing awareness we can show that success and economic growth doesn’t have to mean consuming more fuel or more energy.
The time is ripe to embrace change and new technologies, given the international focus on climate change. Over time, sometimes imperceptibly to those not watching closely, new technologies and innovations are transforming everything in transport — and, for that matter, in my other key portfolio of energy.
