NEW BUSINESS AWARD CATEGORIES
We have introduced three new Awards to recognise achievements by businesses in our industry in the categories of Wellness, Innovation and Sustainability.  Entries for these will open next week.

SAVE THE DATE - FRIDAY 25 JUNE 2021

The 2021 Pride In Print Awards will be presented at the Cordis Hotel in Auckland on Friday 25 June 2021.  Details about purchasing tickets will be available in the new year.

HOLIDAY PAY CALCULATIONS
As 2020 has been a year of much disruption with regards to pay patterns, you will need to ensure you check that your holiday pay calculations are correct. For those that are/have been working reduced hours you will need to ensure the payroll system calculates Average Weekly Earnings over the last 52 weeks and compares this to their Ordinary Weekly Pay, and then selects whichever rate is HIGHER and uses this figure for their holiday pay.  I would recommend that you do a manual check on at least a couple of them to make sure you are complying.

This is a complex area and one that you do not want to get wrong as MBIE can (and do) make spot checks on these calculations.


Members can contact us if they have any queries regarding this.
PUBLIC HOLIDAYS
With public holidays falling across the weekend this year, this is a just a small reminder about how they are applied:

Christmas Day:      Friday 25 December - observed on this day
Boxing Day:           Saturday 26 December - observed on this day if it is your usual day of work
                               Observed on Monday 28 December if Saturday is not your usual day of work

New Year's Day:     Friday 1 January - observed on this day
2nd January:          Saturday 2 January - observed on this day if it is your usual day of work
                               Observed on Monday 4 January if Saturday is not your usual day of work


Again, please check with us if you have any doubt about how these should be applied in your workplace.
Start sending those Pride In Print entries in - we look forward to receiving them in the office.

Cheers
