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.

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.

Cheviot local Vernon Leslie Eade, 78, also known as Les, was sadly killed in a head-on crash on State Highway 1, just north of the town, on Sunday afternoon. His wife, Ann Eade, was badly injured.

Dave Eade described his father as an “incredible gentleman” and “eccentric genius”, who worked as an engineer.

Eade said his mum, who is in Christchurch Hospital with broken ribs, a cracked sternum with cuts and bruises, had no memory of the crash that killed her husband of 52 years. “She’s a very stoic woman. We’ve got to concentrate on getting her better.”

A police spokeswoman confirmed a 48-year-old man has been charged in relation to the crash and will appear in court on Monday.

Our thoughts are with Ann Eade and her family and friends.
