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.

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.

Plan to kick out Christchurch Archery Club under fire

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

A Christchurch sports club is outraged at plans to boot it out of its home of almost 30 years.

Rawhiti Domain has been the Christchurch Archery Club’s base since 1992, but its lease expires in June 2021​​ and a Christchurch City Council hearings panel does not want a new lease to be granted.

It has instead recommended a month-by-month lease to signal to the club it needs to find “a more appropriate and better site”.

The Waitai/Coastal-Burwood Community Board will have the final say at a meeting on Monday (July 6).
