Laws impacting Health and Disability Sector Employers & PCBUs
The Ministry of Health has announced that a new set of workers in the health and disability sector are required to be vaccinated by 11.59pm on 1 January 2021.
This means that the new set of workers must each receive a first dose of an approved vaccine by 11.59pm on 15 November 2021, and have their second dose by 11.59pm on 1 January 2022.
PCBUs and Employers are legally required to stop any worker who has not complied with the vaccination deadlines, from working in a role that is required to be performed by a person who has been vaccinated according to the Covid-19 Public Health Response (Vaccinations) Order 2021 (“the Order”). (Schedule 2, the Order).
Ending an Employment Relationship
Employment relationships are experiencing an immense amount of pressure as the New Zealand Government takes urgent action to manage the spread of Covid-19 and its variants throughout New Zealand.
At the moment, it seems highly likely that an employer will be substantively justified to dismiss a worker who has not been vaccinated from a role that is required to be performed by a person who is vaccinated. Whether or not the employer will be procedurally justified needs to be considered prior to the employer initiating any process with its affected workers.
