New Zealand – Accreditation Employer Compliance Checks

A percentage of all accredited employers will be checked each year. Any employer may be selected as Immigration New Zealand in using selection criteria designed to get a representative sample of New Zealand employers. The checks can be either desk-based or through site visits.

  • evidence of PAYE payments to migrant employees
  • evidence of payment by employers to offshore recruitment agents of their migrant employees
  • hiring dates of migrant employees
