Hospo “furious” at legal risk over vaccine certificates

8th October 2021 By Staff Reporter | | @foodtickernz

Hospitality New Zealand says the “industry’s fury is growing” with the government for not providing legal cover over vaccine certificates.

“We support vaccination certificates, because we’re desperate to open, but the Government must pass a law that protects us from legal action and costs,” Hospitality NZ chief executive Julie White said.

“Our members are frustrated and angry that the government has left this so late, putting us under pressure to do something drastic, without legal protection.”

White said denying people access to venues based on their vaccination status would breach three pieces of legislation and most businesses could not afford to end up in court.
