Almost every day there is a story in the media about an employer being fined for not keeping accurate Employee Records. This is typically related to a lack of or incomplete Wage and Time Records, and/or Employment Agreements
The Employment Relations and Holidays Acts require employers to maintain wage, time, holiday and leave records for their employees.
Employee records must be made available to employees, their unions and Labour Inspectors if they ask for them.
They can be kept in electronic or paper files and must be kept for six years.
