As a reminder:
- Communication and consultation before making changes to contractual obligations is a legal requirement
- This includes situations where you may be looking to invoke business interruption / force majeure provisions
- Variations to terms and conditions agreed by both the employer and employee are required where changes are being proposed and there are no business interruption / force majeure provisions.
If you are applying for wage subsidy support you will be signing a declaration to say that you have not unlawfully changed terms or conditions. For criteria and applications go to:
Resurgence Support Payment - Inland Revenue
Wage Subsidy - Work and Income
Other Business Support Measures - Business.govt.nz
