How much control does your boss have over your life?

Kelly Dennett Reporter from Sunday Star Times

The Sunday Star-Times is investigating the increasing creep of control your boss might have over your life outside work. This might include having to send photos of your remote working space (or having it personally checked off), having to abide by a social media policy, not being able to express political views in social settings, or not being able to have a secondary income. Does this sound familiar? Have you got a story to tell? Email kelly.dennett@stuff.co.nz

Historic Kopu Bridge open gates

Carolyn from Thames

At Historic Kopu Bridge we have sent the final Tour Aotearoa cyclist happily on his way south to Bluff. The riders have been a joy to meet and at the same time it's fantastic how many Thames people and visitors have enjoyed spending time on our historic bridge. Unfortunately, one of our life saver rings was stolen on Thursday, making it difficult to ensure visitor safety and we have decided not to keep the gates open this coming week. If you have seen a ring like this one and can let us know where to find it, please let us know.
