90-day trials will allow smaller employers to take chances - Employers and Manufacturers Association

All employers will soon be able to use 90 Day Work Trials, which the previous Labour government restricted to small businesses.  

The new Government is passing a bill to do so under urgency by Christmas.  

The Employers and Manufacturers Association's Alan McDonald told Tim Dower that it'll mainly be used by smaller employers.  

He says it might encourage them to take a chance on someone returning to the workplace after a long absence, or a school leaver looking for their first job.  

Cabinet's also confirmed that it will repeal Fair Pay Agreements before Christmas, which made it easier for workers to band together to negotiate wages and working conditions.
