Holidays Act payroll remediation

We are about to start remediation for historic payroll issues.

Like many organisations, we’re addressing non-compliance with some aspects of the Holidays Act 2003, resulting from a complex mix of process, policy, practice and system configuration factors.

We will be making payments to affected current staff in November, and expect to make payments to affected former staff early in 2019, once we've sourced and validated the required details. 

If you were employed by WorkSafe, MBIE, or its legacy agencies (including the Department of Labour) between 21 August 2008 and 27 June 2018 you may be affected by this. 

Paying our people correctly is a priority and we’ve made a range of system configuration, process and policy changes to increase our ongoing compliance with the Holidays Act 2003. We’ll continue to monitor our compliance and will undertake further remediation as required to cover the period from 28 June 2018.

Further information is available on MBIE’s website(external link).
