Interpretation
The definition of an employer is a key to determining whether a workplace exists. If no one has the status or function of an employer, then the activities of volunteers alone or a co-operative group are unlikely to give rise to a workplace situation, and the smoke free restrictions will not apply under that category.

“Hospital care institution”
Section 58(4) of the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act 2001 (2001 No 93) provides:
“‘hospital care institution’—
“(a)
means premises used to provide hospital care, in accordance with section 9; but where only parts of any premises are used for that purpose, means only those parts and any other parts used for ancillary purposes; and

Commentary - Local Government Law - Associated Legislation

SF2.32.01
“Internal area”
This definition is important in determining the parts of premises to which the smoke-free obligations apply. Many licensed premises and cafes may provide for outdoor tables, either on the private land or on footpaths controlled by local authorities. Provided the outdoor areas are not completely or substantially enclosed by screens, the areas may be available for smoking activities. Where an area is sited under a veranda or roof screen adjacent to a building and has side screens only in addition, with a major side remaining open, the area is likely to be regarded as not substantially enclosed. The question would be one of fact having regard to the particular premises and purpose of the act.
