Crest Clean Welcomes Shelving of Employment Laws

Crest Clean Welcomes Shelving of Employment Laws


New Zealand’s largest privately owned commercial cleaning company CrestClean today welcomed news that Simon Bridges Employment Relations Amendment Bill is likely to be shelved until after the election.

“The Bill still has flaws in it particularly around controversial section Part 6A: Continuity of Employment, which is a complicated piece of employment law requiring small businesses to seek legal advice of their obligations,” said Grant McLauchlan, Managing Director of Crest Commercial Cleaning.

“New Zealand businesses have seen the Bill bounce around the Parliamentary Order Paper for the last 6 months, all the while hoping that the Minister’s promise of bringing “fairness, flexibility and clarity in employment law” would come true” said Mr McLauchlan.

“But with the Government now not having the support to pass this Bill, the time has come for Simon Bridges to pull the Bill from the Order paper and take another look at the real-world impact of Part 6A”.

“In doing so, the Minister would show real leadership by taking the opportunity to make much needed changes that would help business productivity and competitiveness,” Mr McLauchlan said.
