A number of New Zealand organisations have undertaken projects to identify any inadvertent inaccuracies in employees' pay due to the complexities of the Holidays Act 2003.
F&P has identified a number of payroll related issues which resulted in some employees over time receiving incorrect payments when they took specific leave.
The issues relate to employee entitlements under the Holidays Act 2003, and how a range of allowances and entitlements have been interpreted and then calculated in an employee’s pay when they took leave.
We have remediated our current employees and our attention is now to focus on affected former F&P employees.
Former F&P employees who are eligible for a remediation payment will be invited by email or letter to register for payment from July 2020.
