Holidays Act remediation

If you worked for Genesis between 1 April 2012 and 31 July 2018 you may be eligible for a remediation payment.

Overview

Like many New Zealand employers, Genesis has identified issues that mean some of our employees have had their leave payments calculated incorrectly due to challenges with the interpretation and application of the Holidays Act 2003.

We’ve undertaken a thorough investigation of these issues using a third-party independent specialist, Ernst and Young, and our methods and calculations have been reviewed by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) Labour Inspectorate. These calculations have been completed up to 31 July 2018 and we’ve identified which employees have been underpaid (we aren’t asking for over payments to be repaid).

If you worked for Genesis between 1 April 2012 and 31 July 2018 you may be eligible for a remediation payment

We are proactively contacting some former employees, however if you haven’t heard from us and worked for Genesis during this time, please complete the registration form below so we can check if you’re due a payment.

How we'll look after your information

We’ll hold your data until all remediation payments have been completed. If you’re not eligible for a payment, we’ll delete your details. If we’ve made a payment to you, we’ll hold your information on file for 6 years from the date of payment, at which point it will be deleted.
