New Zealand employers are legally required to have a written employment agreement for each of their employees. The employer must keep a copy of each agreement and provide a copy to the relevant employee upon request.
If the Employment Relations Authority discovers an employer who doesn’t have copies of their employees’ agreements, the employer can be fined up to $100,000.
