Every employee in New Zealand should receive a written employment agreement from their employers. This will detail your hours of work, remuneration and your obligations as a worker. It will also tell you how much time you get for holidays.
You should read this thoroughly before signing or seek the advice of a professional to make sure everything is in order.
All employees are entitled to take leave from work in New Zealand - which is great for when you want to spend time with friends and family, or exploring your new city. Your employment agreement will detail how much leave you will get depending on your hours of work.
