Equal Employment Opportunity

The Queenstown Lakes District Council supports equal employment opportunities. 


Everybody in New Zealand is entitled by law to equal treatment in their employment.  The Queenstown Lakes District Council supports this and has an Equal Employment Opportunity Policy to help make sure that it is a reality.

When making employment related decisions, the Council will make sure that employees are not treated unfairly because of their age, sex, ethnic or national origins, marital status, religious or ethical beliefs or disability.


Employment related decisions include:

  • Appointments
  • Terms of employment
  • Conditions of work
  • Training
  • Promotion
  • Transfer
  • Dismissal or other disciplinary action.

The Council will provide a working environment which is free from sexual harassment.
