Module 10 – Know Your Rights
Starting a new job.
If you are seeking employment or about to start a new job it is important that you know what you are entitled to and that the employer is following a good hiring process.
Your employer must treat you fairly, pay you at least the minimum wage set by the government, and meet their other employment law obligations. They must also make sure your workplace is safe.
You must do your job competently and follow workplace health and safety rules. If you are entitled to work in NZ under a visa, you must also stay within the conditions.
