  • Holidays Act 2003

    Legislation designed to help New Zealand employees achieve a healthy work/life balance. The act sets out the minimum leave entitlements and payment for each type of leave, such as bereavement leave, alternative holidays, public holidays and sick leave.

    All employees are entitled to at least four weeks of paid annual leave each year. For public holidays of cultural, political or historical significance, employees should be entitled to take leave or get special compensation for working on these days.
