The NZ Farming Facebook page sees a shocking number of rural New Zealanders questioning their bosses’ employment rules, which often can be illegal. .
Resident employment law specialist Max Whitehead joined us to answer questions from the page ahead of another Facebook LIVE Q&A next Friday.
Topics will include:
- If you’re on a day wage and work public holidays are you still meant to get time and a half?
- The cash value of rent of the house on the farm and the confusion around that.
- What to do if you see illegal activity on farm such as animal welfare issues and how your employment is protected.
