Holiday Act Headaches: Your Feedback Needed

Holiday Act Headaches: Your Feedback Needed

What are your biggest issues in dealing with the Holidays Act?

The New Zealand Government is seeking feedback on a new Issues Paper, which outlines the biggest problems employers, employees and payroll providers face in trying to implement the Holidays Act.

It’s a chance for small business owners to have their say on the parts of the Holidays Act they find the most difficult.

Specifically, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment wants feedback on the following:

  • Whether the issues set out in the Issues Paper are described accurately
  • Whether you have experienced any other issues working with the Act that are not captured in the Issues Paper? If so, what are these issues?
  • Any suggestions or proposals for change.

The release of the Issues Paper is the latest step in a full review of the Holidays Act, which was first established in May. The review aims to reduce the complexity of the Holidays Act and make sure it reflects New Zealand’s changing labour market.

Submissions are open until 12 October.
