Operating as an Employer during Alert Level 4

August 2021 Grace Moore

All business owners should be considering their employment obligations as New Zealand enters into an Alert Level 4 lockdown for the first time in more than a year.

If your business is not essential (as per these Government guidelines) and/or cannot operate safely under Alert Level 4, your doors need to remain closed. This means that many of you may not be able to offer work to your employees.

Past lockdowns have shown that non-essential business owners are still expected to discuss and agree on any changes to their employee’s work arrangements, and pay, in good faith and wherever possible.

Our Mortlock McCormack team are online and ready to assist with what Alert Level 4 means for you and your business. If you are uncertain about your obligations or want to check that you are taking the right steps, get in touch with our employment specialist, Grace Moore, Senior Solicitor (grace@mmlaw.co.nz / 027 844 1560).
