CEO Comment July 2019

23 July 2019

Virginia webWe are concerned with the time it is taking for Immigration NZ to process new work visas, and to renew existing work visas.  We are continuing to advocate on your behalf with this very concerning issue.

We would like to welcome to our team Charlotte Wouda, our new Health & Safety Advisor.  Charlotte comes to us from a background in health and safety with an irrigation company in Southland.

We hope to welcome you in Dunedin on 29 August, for an evening with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade (MFAT).  They will update us on the European Union-New Zealand trade negotiations and other trade negotiations.

Diana Hudson our Managing Solicitor also updates us on the Employment Relations (Triangular Employment) Amendment Act 2019, which has recently passed into law.

Just a reminder that if you need any employment, human resources or health and safety advice, typically one-off phone calls up to 15 minutes are free.

As always any feedback is welcome.

Kind regards,


Virginia Nicholls | CEO |
