THE RISKS OF NOT HAVING EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS FOR YOUR STAFF

Whether staff are full time, part time or casual employees, it is important that a written agreement is not only in place, but that it complies with the Employment Relations Act 2000.

Employers must by law:
•    have employment agreements for all their employees;
•    retain signed copies of employees' employment agreements;
•    give employees a copy, whether the employee asks for one or not.

If an employer does not have a copy of an employment agreement they may be liable for a fine imposed by the Employment Relations Authority of up to $10,000 for individuals and $20,000 for companies.

If you are an employer and any of your employees don't have an employment agreement, now would be a good time to put one in place.
