Before recruiting a dental professional, either as an employee or a contractor, legally you need to make sure they have the right to work in NZ.
People entitled are those who:
You must keep evidence to prove your employee's right to work in NZ, which can be one of the following:
There are penalties (maximum $50,000) for hiring a person who is not entitled to work for you. It is important to check and keep records to show that you completed the checks.
Candidates do not need to have a valid visa to be offered a job, but they must have one that allows them to work in NZ by the time they begin working for you.
