Variations to pay agreements during Covid 109 alert levels

Ronald from Maxron Associates

Did you enter into an agreement to take a pay cut at various alert levels
Some employers and employees may have agreed to a reduction in pay, for example to ensure the financial viability of the businesses and to avoid the need for redundancies.
Any return to standard wages would depend on what was agreed. Any reduction in pay must have been mutually agreed and negotiated in good faith. Employees should have had an appropriate amount of time to consider their employer’s proposal.
If an employee agreed to a pay cut at alert level 4, they may be asking should my wages go back to normal at lower alert levels. The short answer is yes, the arrangement you agreed to was for Alert Level 4. If an employer wishes to continue the pay cut in level 3 or 2, they will need to re-negotiate those changes with the employee
Some employers and employees may have agreed to a reduction in hours during Alert Level 4. If hours worked then increase to normal levels at other alert levels, employees should be paid as normal.
The minimum wage and employment agreements apply in all cases.

Keep an eye on daily water usage

The Team from Auckland Council

As the drier months set in, you’ll be seeing this water gauge quite a bit. It’s a way for metropolitan Auckland to keep an eye on daily water usage. The aim is to stay in the green and below the daily target.

To see the gauge in action, visit www.watercare.co.nz

If you’re on tank water, when did you last look inside your tank? If you rely on rain to keep your household taps flowing, toilet flushing or stock watered, now’s a good time to check your levels, monitor your usage and look at booking a top-up early. Secure your water future by investing in an additional tank.
