Increased Sick Leave

May 2021

Employees will soon be entitled to a minimum paid sick leave entitlement of 10 days a year after the Holidays (Increasing Sick Leave) Amendment Bill passed its third and final reading yesterday. The changes will come into effect two months from receiving Royal Assent, which is likely to occur in the next few days. Therefore, we expect this change will come into force at the end of July 2021.
