From the NZFVC

Submissions are now being accepted on the newly proposed pay equity legislation. 

The deadline to make a submission on the Equal Pay Amendment Bill 2018 is 28 November 2018

The proposed legislation is intended to make it easier for workers to file a pay equity claim within New Zealand’s existing bargaining framework.

Minister for Workplace Relations and Safety Iain Lees-Galloway said "... the Bill followed all the recommendations of the reconvened and original Joint Working Group on Pay Equity Principles."

Dr Jackie Blue, Equal Employment Opportunities and Women’s Rights Commissioner, welcomed the proposed legislation while calling for additional, more proactive approaches to addressing pay equity.
