Sick leave doubles to 10 days

25th May 2021 By Staff Reporter | news@foodticker.co.nz | @foodtickernz

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.
