Working Group set up to review the Holidays Act
On: 29 May 2018
A Holidays Act Working Group has been established by the Government to carry out a full review of the Holidays Act.
The Group will be made up of employer, worker and government representatives and will be chaired by Gordon Anderson, a law professor at Victoria University with extensive experience in employment law.
The Group will report back within 12 months with recommendations to government on options for a clear and transparent set of rules for providing entitlements to, and payment for, holidays and leave that can be readily implemented in a payroll system and is applicable to an increasingly diverse range of working and pay arrangements.
