Employer Bulletin | 24 July

Issue date

Prime Minister Chris Hipkins has announced a new criminal offense targeting ramraid offending, with a maximum 10-year sentence. This move aims to combat the considerable harm caused by ram raids and address the cycle of reoffending among a small group of young offenders. The new law allows 12 and 13-year-olds involved in ram-raids to be charged in the Youth Court and covers passengers in the ram-raid vehicle if they participate in theft or damage.

In today's Bulletin

  • New offence for ram raiding, young offenders to face more accountability
  • New Zealanders welcoming the return of tourism
  • Government acts to reduce financial stress for small businesses
  • Annual inflation at 6.0 percent
  • Backing the All Blacks: Businesses can open longer for Rugby World Cup
