National recycles 90 day policy

The National Party is resurrecting aspects of it’s failed 90 days with no work rights idea as part of its policies for the upcoming election. This time, they’re proposing a 90 day trial period for new staff in small businesses only (so would only affect small employers in the finance sector), during which they can be sacked with no grievance procedures.

CTU President Helen Kelly said the policy was about removing choice and rights for workers. “National’s right to unfairly sack workers would be given to the 96 per cent of all employers who make up small businesses, and could affect up to 200,000 workers every year. Currently all businesses can dismiss workers when it is justified and fair including on day one, but why specifically legalise unfair behaviour – it is beyond belief.”
