Department of Labour, National
The Department of Labour wants to hear your views about quality flexible work arrangements. The Transport and Industrial Relations Committee of Parliament has asked the Department to consult widely on the best ways to deliver flexible working hours to New Zealanders.
The Department has been working with business, unions and other workplace leaders to promote quality flexible work. They want to find out more about the issues for you and your workplace or business, and what will help employees and employers implement and manage flexible work arrangements.
The Department will be releasing a discussion paper in early November outlining the key issues and possible approaches for quality flexible work and will be inviting submissions on the paper until mid December. To find out more about the consultation you can visit the Department's web site www.dol.govt.nz or contact Cath Edmondson on 04 915 4692 or email@example.com or Deborah Tucker on 04 915 4376 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
