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.
The Select Committee is due to report back to Parliament in early October 2022. The Fair Pay Agreement system is expected to commence shortly after the Bill has passed, anticipated to be at the end of 2022.
