    And wasn’t it surprising that it was a Talley’s factory that Bill English chose to go to for his photo op and lauding how successful is our economy.  Not!  🙄

    Does anyone know where i can find what the legislation says:
    What number of worked hours equals a job?
    Whether an employer still has the right to have labour on stand by and not offer hours or only limited hours?

    Bill English certainly got a grilling from workers at a Kaiaponi Farms packhouse near Gisborne today eh?

    I found this:
    Payment under a contract of service can include wages, salary, commission and piece rates.

    Employees include:

    people who have been offered and have accepted a job, but are yet to start working
    permanent employees (full-time and part-time)
    fixed-term employees (full-time and part-time)
    casual employees
    homeworkers
    seasonal employees
    employees on probationary and trial periods.

    An employee is not:

    a self-employed or independent contractor
    a volunteer who does not receive a reward for working
    a sharemilker
    a real estate agent whose agreement says they are an independent contractor
    in some cases, a person who works in film production.

    This statement sets out the Labour Inspectorate’s position on work in a business operation without payment of wages.

    Full time work

    Full time usually means a person works 40 hours a week, but could mean from 30 to 40 hours.
    Start and finish times can vary depending on circumstances. For example, a parent might start early or work shorter hours so they can collect their children from school.
    Full-time employees sometimes work shifts, and may work outside of standard business hours. These shifts may be set hours, or change from week to week.

    Thank goodness Worksafe are involved in investigating health and safety breaches @Savemart shops. Staff have been made redundant for complaining.
