New Zealand government scraps in-study work rights review
The New Zealand government has scrapped plans to change in-study work rights for international students after receiving advice from the international education sector as part of a wider migrant worker exploitation review, The PIE News can reveal.
Made shortly before the end of 2018, the decision will see in-study work rights remain at their current levels and concludes changes to overseas student work rights for the time being after the government overhauled post-study rights the same year.
Immigration minister Iain Lees-Galloway confirmed to The PIEplans to change the work rights of students while they study had been postponed.
“The government plans to carefully monitor the effects of the November changes to post-study work rights before deciding whether any further action is necessary,” Lees-Galloway explained.
