HOLIDAY PAY REMEDIATION INFORMATION FOR FORMER CENTREPORT EMPLOYEES
CentrePort commissioned an independent review in 2018 of its payroll processes and resulting annual holiday and other leave payments to assess compliance with the Holidays Act 2003. This was in response to advice that the payroll systems of many New Zealand businesses and Government agencies had miscalculated how holiday and leave should be paid to employees.
The review conducted by PWC established that there had been miscalculations in holiday and leave payments for some CentrePort employees, mostly impacting staff who work variable hours.
Now that work is complete, we’re putting things right by providing remediation payments to our people and former employees who were impacted by this legislation between July 2012 and July 2021.
Former employees identified as being underpaid will have received an email communication from CentrePort directing them to this website. Please click on the following link to complete the Former Employee Claim Form
