Employment Relations Amendment Bill under consideration would mean workers could be required to keep up their work duties or remain in the workplace during their paid and unpaid breaks, if their boss asks.
A better future through a National gubbermint of course.

Does 5:30pm to 8am count as an "unpaid break" from work? Why is employment law such a stacked deck in New Zealand, was there a catalyst?

Don't tell me you thought slavery had been abolished.


Yes the catalyst was that some provincial airports were threatening to have to close for 40 minutes each day, so that their Air Traffic Controller could leave the scene for their meal breaks. So instead of being sensible and sorting out the situation with five people, we all apparently have to go back to the dark ages.

Although, I never take the breaks that I am entitled to but some in my office down tools and follow their morning and afternoon ritual of ten (going on 30 minutes) 'smoko'.
