Poll: Should Kiwis be entitled to more sick leave?

The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Most Kiwis are entitled to five days of sick leave a year, but some - often those in lower paid jobs - get less.

New Zealand’s minimum sick leave allowance is one of the lowest in the OECD. In Australia they get 10 days, in most European countries it’s even more.

This is a very special English Language Partners bi-annual award which is presented to a learner who has shown outstanding progress in their acquisition and use of English. Jaswinder is from India and had never been to school before he attended our classes. Jaswinder not only studied and practiced his English outside the classroom, he picks up and drops of some fellow students so they may attend the class and has helped some of the other learners in his class to resolve issues they have had outside the classroom. Congratulations Jaswinder. We are all really proud of you.
