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.

CAR ACCIDENT AT BAYFAIR CARPARK NEAR BUS STOPS 3rd June.

Eileen from Papamoa Beach

I hope someone can help me. I was parked in the carpark at Bayfair mall behind farmers near where the buses come in.

I beeped my horn several times but the vehicle kept … View moreI hope someone can help me. I was parked in the carpark at Bayfair mall behind farmers near where the buses come in. I had backed out of my park and was ready to drive off when I saw a vehicle start to back out about 4 parks down from me. I beeped my horn several times but the vehicle kept coming. I then stood fully on my horn but it scraped down the side end of my car. The driver said he was "away with the fairies" and didn't hear my horn. He told his Insurance Co that we were both reversing at the same time which is a lie and I now have to pay half the repair bill. A man in a car parked in front of me saw the whole thing. If you are the man and reading this can you please contact me on 0210440978. Maybe someone mentioned this incident to you. My car is a Honda Accord colour pale blue and the other vehicle was a grey lexus SUV. Unfortunately there are no security cameras operating in that outside carpark. I would be grateful if I can get some proof of this as currently it is his word against mine.
Regards
Eileen.
