Sick leave change - are you ready?

From 24 July 2021, it will be compulsory for organisations to provide a minimum of 10 days sick leave.

Employees will get the extra 5 days when they reach their next entitlement date after 24 July, either after reaching 6 months’ employment or on their sick leave entitlement anniversary (12 months after they were last entitled to sick leave).

Organisations need to make sure they are ready for the change - you can learn more here. MBIE also have information here.
