From 2019

Between October and November 2019, public input was sought on a discussion document on the design of the Fair Pay Agreement system, in response to the Working Group Report. 648 submissions were received, and 22 meetings were held between MBIE and a range of stakeholders.

In May 2021, the Government announced the design of the Fair Pay Agreement system, informed by the Fair Pay Agreement Working Group and public consultation, as well as involvement from the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions and BusinessNZ.

A draft version of the Bill will be released later in 2021, and people will have an opportunity to comment on the Bill during the Select Committee process.
