Like many public and private organisations across New Zealand, Te Whatu Ora – Health New Zealand has been impacted by Holidays Act 2003 compliance issues.
People who have worked for Te Whatu Ora, one of the former District Health Boards, or Health Alliance, Health Partnerships, Health Source or Northern Region Alliance at any time since 1 May 2010 may have been paid incorrectly for their leave. Te Whatu Ora is committed to addressing these issues, to ensure current and former Te Whatu Ora employees receive their correct leave entitlements.
A new national portal for Holidays Act remediation is now available for former Te Whatu Ora employees to register. The secure portal will act as a single point of contact and source of information for all former employees nationwide. Te Whatu Ora will use the portal to keep people informed about any upcoming payments that may relate to them. The portal will also provide people with details about how any payment to them was calculated. We will also reach out directly to former employees using their last known contact details.
Payments to former employees are expected to start in 2024. Te Whatu Ora is legally obliged to pay any amounts owed, no matter how small.
Register on the national portal for former employees.
