MIGRANT STAFF FACE LOCAL AGED CARE DIFFERENCES

With the aged care industry employing many migrant specialist workers, a number are encountering differences in the way retirement villages and care facilities operate in this country.

The Government has provided a well worded advice note to operators to illustrate the differences from most of the home countries of the workers. Much of it is related to specific rights of older people in New Zealand with additional health and safety workplace information.

The information is critical in explaining new ways of working, workplace training and detail on obtaining New Zealand qualifications.

The guide package details the importance of migrant workers in the industry by filling labour skill shortages and how they can be settled into both the country and the workplace.
