Volunteers at a Marae (Fact sheet)

The extent to which any duties will apply to the use of voluntary labour on your marae will depend on the nature of the activities, and whether or not the marae employs staff. Where a marae trust or committee organises an event using voluntary workers, it has a general duty to provide for the safety and welfare of those workers. The duty is not enforceable, but is a legal statement of volunteers’ right to remain safe while carrying out voluntary work.
