    Kia ora – the 27 March update from Grant Robertson states that
    “The wage subsidy does not change any other employment law obligations, meaning employees must be paid appropriately under their employment agreements for the hours they do if they work during the lockdown.”
    Hope this helps…


    Hi there that’s a great question – The ACC website has some specific information relating to Covid:

    For individuals, they say “You need to have an injury that resulted from an accident to receive support from ACC. We don’t cover things like illness.” “However, in some cases, cover for the COVID-19 virus may be available if a person who is diagnosed with it meets the criteria for a work-related gradual process, disease or infection under section 30 of the ACC Act 2001. Please speak to your healthcare professional for guidance.”
