The government has passed the Holidays (Increasing Sick Leave) Amendment Bill, doubling minimum sick leave entitlement for employees to 10 days each year.
The Restaurant Association had advocated for a more measured approach rather than the blanket increase from 5 to 10 days, and continued to hold the view that any increase should not come into force this year, but be delayed until the hospitality industry recovered from the impact of Covid-19.
The new legislation will come into effect around mid-July.
