What you’ll learn:
New Zealand employment legislation is complex and wide ranging, with payroll practitioners requiring knowledge of key Acts to ensure calculations comply with the law. This course will allow learners to understand the essential calculations covering a range of employee payment situations.
During this level 5 course, fully worked examples covering a range of different situations will be provided that can be applied in your workplace. Learners are encouraged throughout the course to ask questions.
Please note: This course is not suited to a person new or in an entry level payroll position.
This course is provided as a virtual classroom and learners will need to be willing to be part of an online classroom environment.
This is so the trainer and learners can interact fully as a group to share and undertake the exercises that will be undertaken as part of the course. A comprehensive set of course notes will be couriered to each attendee.
