New Zealand: Non-Compliant Employers Are Temporarily Prevented From Hiring Non Migrant Labour

Latest on non-compliant employers that are temporarily prevented from hiring non migrant labour

From the 1 April 2017 employers who have incurred a penalty for breach of employment standard will be added to a list provided to Immigration New Zealand (INZ) by the Labour Inspectorate. Employers on this list will not be able to recruit migrant labour for either 6 months, 1 year, 18 months or 2 years, depending on the severity of the breach.

Organisations that are effected are ones that have plans to recruit migrant labours to include:

  • Employers who support work visa applications and approvals in principals.
  • Employers seeking accredited employer status or supporting residence class visa applications based on employment
  • Employers who are part of the Recognised Seasonal Employer scheme.

Migrant workers working at a non-compliant employer will not have to work out their visa, for further employment visa’s granted it will have to be with employers who have a history of compliance with employment law.
