Small business owners can now quickly and easily build policies to support their business with the launch of a new online tool via business.govt.nz, Minister for Small Business Jacqui Dean says.
“Business owners can use the Workplace Policy Builder to create policies on flexible work, IT and social media and leave and holidays,” says Ms Dean.
“All the policies in the tool comply with current law, and users can choose to be updated if there are any relevant law changes that impact the policies they have created for their business.
“This tool gives business owners all the information they need and allows them to get on with what they do best, running their business.
“The Workplace Policy Builder is part of a growing suite of tools built and hosted by business.govt.nz to help make compliance easy for small business.
“With both the Workplace Policy Builder and Employment Agreement Builder available for free online, it is quick and easy to get both employment agreements and policies sorted.
“As a Government we are committed to helping small businesses succeed and grow, and user-friendly tools such as these are just some of the ways we are making our services easy to find and better for business,” says Ms Dean.
