The New Zealand Government announced on 11 December 2023 its intention to extend 90-day trial periods to all employers, but this does not apply to accredited employers and those on the AEWV.




The New Zealand Government announced on 11 December 2023 its intention to extend 90-day trial periods to all employers.

It is important to note that accredited employers are not captured in this legislation so this will not apply to accredited employers and those on the AEWV.

On 29 October 2023, rules came into effect that meant accredited employers are not able to use 90-day trial periods in employment agreements.

  • Employment agreements provided with job check applications must not include a trial period.

  • Employers who use a trial period in employment agreements will risk having their accreditation revoked.

  • Breaches could be detected up front as part of the job check process, or through post-decision and reaccreditation checks. Source: Immigration New Zealand
