Small and medium-sized cleaning businesses are to be given more flexibility when it comes to staff.
Labour Minister Kate Wilkinson has announced changes to Part 6A of the Employment Relations Act, which until now ensured employees' entitlements and information was the same when a new owner took over a business.
A review of that has found while larger businesses can cope with that, smaller companies struggle.
The changes mean businesses with fewer than 20 employees will be exempt.
