Urgent review of Holidays Act required

9 Mar 2016

BusinessNZ and the NZ Payroll Practitioners' Association are calling for an urgent review of the Holidays Act.

They say the current difficulty experienced by MBIE incorrectly paying holiday pay is just one example of a number of problems caused by the Holidays Act.

Both organisations say the Act is too complex and does not fit with many work environments, and the multiple calculations to be undertaken make it difficult for employers to understand and properly comply with.

BusinessNZ and the Payroll Practitioners Association are seeking urgent action by the Government to fix the Act.
