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.

New rules for owners of rentals

Andrew from Personal Property Management

The new amendment to the RTA was passed last week which will mean some massive changes to managing residential tenancies in NZ. Deliberately structured to shift the balance of power to tenants, all landlords are going to have to re-educate themselves on how to operate in this new environment.

If you need help to navigate these changes or with tenant selection, we would be happy to help.

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hi nieghbours,

A case of Covid-19 picked up in Wellington has turned out to be a false alarm.

Director-General of Health Dr Ashley Bloomfield on Thursday announced 13 new cases of community transmission in New Zealand – all outside Wellington.

But answering questions, he said there was a positive test that came up in Wellington. Re-testing came up negative, meaning it was a false-positive. To read more, click here
