PETITION: INTRODUCE CORPORATE MANSLAUGHTER LEGISLATION IN NEW ZEALAND
Prime Minister Chris Hipkins
Justice Minister Kiritapu Allan
Workplace Relations Minister Michael Wood
We believe every working person has the right to return home safely at the end of the day. The health and wellbeing of all workers must be a top priority for the companies they work for.
Businesses that cut corners to save costs at the expense of workers’ lives, bosses that repeatedly disregard risks that kill their employees, and directors that take unacceptable risks with workers’ lives must be held accountable.
In the last year...
We can achieve a world of work that is free from violence and harassment.
Join the COALITION FOR A SAFE WORLD OF WORK and add your name to call on the government to ratify a global convention that will create a better future for us all.
We call on Parliament to undertake the work needed to ratify ILO Violence and Harassment Convention, 2019 (190) as a matter of priority.
Convention 190 provides a framework for the legal, cultural and industrial changes necessary to eliminate violence, in all its forms, from the world of work. It establishes the right of everyone to a world of work free from violence and harassment, including gender-based violence and harassment.
By undertaking the work to ratify Convention 190, New Zealand would make workplaces safer and demonstrate global leadership on this issue.
