The New Zealand government has launched a new online tool that helps small business owners build law-compliant policies to support their business.

“Business owners can use the Workplace Policy Builder to create policies on flexible work, IT and social media and leave and holidays,” said Jacqui Dean, minister for small business. “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.”

The tool, which can be accessed here, helps business owners save time to focus more on running their businesses, Dean said.

“The Workplace Policy Builder is part of a growing suite of tools built and hosted by to help make compliance easy for small business,” she said. “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.”
