Template: Variation to Sick Leave Entitlement Letter


Updating your employees’ contracts for the new Sick Leave Entitlement
New Zealand’s minimum sick leave entitlement increases to 10 days on 24 July 2021. We recommend employers provide a variation letter to employees, to confirm their new minimum entitlement.

Here’s the Variation to Sick Leave Entitlement letter template, to update existing staffs’ employment agreements, with the new sick leave entitlements. You can learn more about the sick leave entitlement update here.
