Reply To: Two part question. The first : My partner flys for a certain airline. If she happens to catch Covid 19 while working and is unable to perform her duties, is her loss of income covered by the airline through ACC etc?? 2nd Part : If the same scenario happens & she contracts Covid 19 while working and is then made redundant due to the downturn in the industry, what legal cover does she have in this instance? Thank you.

First part of your question – yes there are grants for businesses to cover the costs / contribute to as a result of employees having to self-isolate and/or having being diagnosed with Covid-19 – see a bit of detail at this page – https://covid19.govt.nz/help-and-advice/for-businesses-and-organisations/employers/

the 2nd part, I really am not aware of the legal situation, so hoping others will come on and contributing.
