Part Time Employment Contract

Designed specifically for the New Zealand market and the Employment Relations Act 2000 (as amended). All our Employment Agreements aim to maximise the protection of the Employer and their  business. However nothing in our Agreements is unfair or disadvantages the Employee.

Employee's rights are largely protected by law, the Employer's aren't. In a  dispute situation the onus of proof and cost of defence is often on the Employer. Subsequent disciplinary or dismissal issues in the employment relationship will require the parties to refer back to the Employment Agreement.  As an Employer you need to protect yourself and your business from the outset with a comprehensive Employment Agreement.

Recently updated in 2024 to cover all the recent changes. Sick leave, bereavement leave, Employment Relations Amendment Act, 90 Day Trial periods, Probationary Periods, rest & meal breaks, Family Violence, force majeure, pandemics, rain offs and tsunamis, confidentiality and the Privacy Act in December 2020.

By law Employers and Employees must have an Employment Agreement in place.  There are mandatory clauses required by the Act, some examples are:

  • Party information
  • Position
  • Duties
  • Place of work
  • Working hours
  • Type of pay
  • Public Holidays
  • Restructuring
  • Resolving Employment Relationship Problems

Compliant with latest legislation, legally correct and easy to use. All our Employment Agreements are written by our experienced and qualified in-house legal team.

Our Full Time Employment Contract:

  • Includes detailed notes to assist with completion.
  • Is in MS Word docx format - Other formats are available upon request.

We offer all types of Employment Agreements; Full Time, Part Time, Casual, Fixed Term and an Independent Contractors Agreement. If you are unsure which type is best for you please contact us. The importance of using the correct type from the outset is paramount. Once the candidate is employed it is too late. Courts can void Employment Agreements in a dispute situation removing any protection the Employer thought they had.

A Part Time Agreement is fundamentally the same as a Full Time Agreement - with different hours of work stipulated. Fixed Term and Casual however are very different for specific reasons. For more information on these types please see our Casual Agreement and Fixed  Term Agreement. For further information please don't hesitate to get in touch, it is very important to get this bit right.
