Accredited Employers Programme Consultation

This submission made on the ACC’s Accredited Employer Programme (AEP) argues that the proposed changes are not enough to overcome the issues arising from the AEP and that a fundamental evaluation of the programme is necessary.  

Key issues for workers under AEP including, unaddressed systemic barriers to worker engagement and union representation, and workers’ poor experience of claims and rehabilitation processes are not addressed.  

The NZCTU outlines that the AEP too often fails workers who are captured under the scheme and, on a practical basis, the improvement suggested in the consultation document are unlikely to result in positive changes for workers.
