IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL EMPLOYERS
Employee justifiably dismissed for medical incapacity…
An employee has been dismissed 22 months after suffering a serious spinal and pelvic injury while at work. The employee returned to work after a year, under a graduated return to work programme organised by ACC. The employee completed light duties and had built up to working 16 hour weeks when his occupational medical specialist told him that he would not be able to return to work in his pre-injury role.

Are you paying TOO MUCH for Recruitment?
A little bit more shameless self promotion is needed today, as I just talked to a local agency and was absolutely flabbergasted by their steep - in fact ridiculously out-of-this-world high fees for recruiting.
They proposed that if my clients paid them 22% for a candidate (based on first years annual salary) that they would be getting a great deal. When I suggested that price was a bit extreme the consultant said it was because they do 'elite' head hunting around New Zealand.
EMPLOYEE COST CALCULATOR
A new employee might take your business to a whole new level. But before you commit, take a moment to think about the less obvious costs involved in taking on a new employee.
Use the Employee Cost Calculator
to understand the costs of a new employee. This provides indicative costs of what hiring will actually cost, and prompt you to also think about:
- Salary or hourly wages
- ACC levies, KiwiSaver contributions and Fringe Benefit Tax
- Recruitment costs(Nb: One21 Recruitment are a contractor with specialised skills and charge lower costs than a recruitment agency charging a contingency fee - this will save you on many other costs in regards to time, advertising, processing applications, interviewing and making the
20 minute delay costs employer heaps…
The Employment Relations Authority has upheld an employee’s personal grievance claim for unjustified dismissal because the 90-day trial clause in his contract was ineffective.
The clause was correctly worded, the employee was given a copy of the contract and signed it before he started work.
So what went wrong for the employer?
The ERA held that the clause failed to be effective for two reasons (either would have been sufficient to set aside the clause).
DO YOU KNOW HOW AN RPO WORKS?
Recruitment Process Outsourcing is where an employer outsources or transfers all or part of its recruitment activities to an external service provider who specializes in this area(such as One21 - The Recruitment Outsourcer). We act as the 'internal' recruitment function for your company for either a portion or all of the job and can manage the entire recruiting/hiring process or just parts of it.
We usually work very closely with the Human Resource or Hiring Managers as the recruitment arm of the business, manage any collaborative relationships with specialist recruitment agencies when necessary and take care of all the advertising and marketing of the role vacancy, all communications and arrangements with applicants and every other aspect of the recruitment process.

Curriculum Vitae's - or at the least CV’s that get past the first screen cut
and might even get shortlisted.

PART FIVE - TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL CURRICULUM VITAE
Is your CV getting enough attention?
In this competitive job market you may only have an average of 5-10 seconds to capture an employers or recruiters attention. If there are dozens of applications coming through for the same role the person doing the screening may be working on the theory of ‘elimination’ or ‘cutting out the chuff’ before short-listing.
Below are a few tips to make sure your CV is not eliminated in that initial screening process.
PART FOUR – Are you losing potential employers attention with too many or too few details in your CV?
Details, details, details…. How many is too many?
“I explained in detail in my CV how I was involved in the …… and what went on with the …. and into the ……. and how the …….”.
Boring, boring, boring NONSENSE! You don’t want to blind the recruitment person or potential employer with science, or lose their attention with long-winded waffle.
