Empower yourself and stand up for your employment rights!
Employment New Zealand has launched the new Introduction to your employment rights learning module.
This free module will help you as a current or future worker in five key ways:
1. Know and remember your employment rights. 2. It’s easy! Learn with fun activities, voice overs so you don’t have to read if that’s your preference, and translations in five languages: Chinese, Hindi, Samoan, Tagalog and Korean. 3. Empower you to raise issues with your employer. 4. Help you sort out issues early when they are small and prevent them from growing big. 5. Test yourself and be assured you understood the key points via the quiz. Your registration also gives access to further modules for your ongoing learning.
