Hi there. We are an Australian company looking to employ a NZ sales worker and need to do an employment contract offer for this person. Can we give them our Australian employment contract that we normally issue to our staff here? Or do we need to give them an employment contract which stipulates NZ employment laws in it? We are not aware of NZ employment laws so if we need to issue a contract with NZ employment laws is there a template or something we could use?

Thanks & Regards,
Trish
