Setting up leave entitlements
After each 12 months of continuous employment, an employee is entitled to not less than four weeks’ annual holidays as paid time off work. Some employees may agree to be paid at least eight percent of gross earnings in addition to their usual pay instead, but only if they meet specific criteria.
You may offer your employees more than the minimum. An employee’s annual holidays entitlement remains in force until the employee has taken the holidays or it's been paid out under s28B of the Act.
To learn more about the ins-and-outs of annual leave, see the Employment New Zealand website.
