Webinar recording: Upcoming Immigration changes

We recently held a free webinar on Employing Migrant Workers. Incase you missed it or would like to listen again, we have now made it available here.

Held in conjunction with Malcolm Pacific Immigration, the Webinar discusses the upcoming changes to temporary work visas and how businesses can prepare for them – in particular the requirement for employers to be accredited with Immigration NZ by 2021 in order to hire migrant workers.

Immigration New Zealand estimates between 16,000 and 22,000 employers who sponsor migrant work visas are not yet accredited.

While 2021 might seem like a while away, it’s going to come around quicker than you think, and with it an inevitable bottleneck. If you want to avoid getting caught short, you need to be thinking about it now.

Our Webinar talks you through:

• Who needs to be ‘accredited’
• What we know about the process and what you should be doing now
• What you need to do to become accredited
• Some risk areas to start thinking about

Have a listen at your leisure, and if you have any questions and/or would like assistance to become prepared please get in touch.

Once Labour Day has been [yes, believe it or not it’s this coming Monday], the next public holidays are at Christmas and New Year.

In the next few weeks, my colleague, Tasneem Begum, and I will be offering a free webinar for those employers who want a bit more information around those tricky calculations for leave at this time of the year. We will also be able to answer the questions you have and the challenges you face with leave during the Christmas/New Year period. You are not alone with the questions you have – Questions we are often asked at this time of the year are about employing staff to cover the busy Christmas period

What the heck is going on with pay?

What the heck is going on with pay?

While we are conscious of the impact that inflation is having on wage and salary conversations, there are four other levers that have been, and are being, used to bring about fundamental change and significant uplift to pay in New Zealand. The Government is using these levers to drive increases in pay at various levels in ways that we may not be conscious of. However, when brought together as a single thread, they are having a big impact.

To Mediate or not to Mediate

To Mediate or not to Mediate

To mediate or not to mediate – that is the question… While William Shakespeare put into verse Hamlet’s soliloquy in endless agonising verse about dire choices with absolutely no chance of a happy ending – it is not so with mediation. Change the name, and the thinking around the word mediation. Let’s start thinking about it and calling it “an opportunity”. That’s really what mediation is; an opportunity for parties in conflict to come together and sort out their problem(s). It doesn’t have to be the only option, but it should be considered as a first step.
