6 Relationship between Act and employment agreements


Each entitlement provided to an employee by this Act is a minimum entitlement.


This Act does not prevent an employer from providing an employee with enhanced or additional entitlements (whether specified in an employment agreement or otherwise) on a basis agreed with the employee.


However, an employment agreement that excludes, restricts, or reduces an employee’s entitlements under this Act—


has no effect to the extent that it does so; but


is not an illegal contract under subpart 5 of Part 2 of the Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017.

Section 6(3)(b): amended, on 1 September 2017, by section 347 of the Contract and Commercial Law Act 2017 (2017 No 5).
