Bakasyon

Disclaimer muna – all information here should be verified by the reader against the NZ Holiday Act of 2003. http://www.ers.dol.govt.nz/holidays_act_2003/.

Hindi, hindi po ako magbabakasyon. Medyo holiday mood lang. Explain ko lang dito very briefly kung ano-anong mga holidays meron sa NZ at ang iba-ibang leave entitlements ng mga empleyado.

Public Holidays

  1. Christmas - 25 and 26 December (Note 26 December is known here as Boxing day. Wala pong laban si Paquaio on that day. Walang boksing. Yun lang ang tawag nila. I’ll explain na lang later kung bakit yun ang tawag nila)
  2. New Year and the day after - 1 and 2 January
  3. Waitangi Day – 6 February
  4. Good Friday and Easter Monday (dates variable)
  5. ANZAC Day - 25 April
  6. Queen's Birthday - first Monday in June
  7. Labour Day - fourth Monday in October
  8. and Provincial Anniversary Day (date determined locally. Normally this is known as Auckland Day, Wellington Day, etc.)

All in all, that's 11 days in a year.
Note: if a holiday falls on a weekend, the following working day will be a holiday.

Paano kung pumasok ka ng Public Holiday, magkano ibabayad sa yo? You will be paid 1.5 x your normal pay PLUS you are entitled to an alternative holiday (also known as Day in Lieu). Ibig sabihin meron ka pang isang araw na pwede mong gamitin para mag-holiday at your convenience dagdag dun sa binayad sa yong 1.5 times your normal pay.

Annual Leave
All employees after the first year of employment are entitled to 3 weeks paid annual leave. However, starting 1 April 2007, this is increased to 4 weeks. Yheey! Kapag di mo nagamit ang annual leave mo, pwede itong i-accumulate for the next year. Ibig sabihin kung hindi ka nag-leave sa first year, after the second year, may 6 weeks kang annual leave available. For some employers, pinapayagan ka rin umutang ng leave. Por eksampol, gusto mong magbakasyon ng 4 weeks, kaso 3 weeks pa lang ang meron ka, pwede mong utangin yung 1 week. Sa susunod na taon, 2 weeks na lang ang entitlement mo.

Sick Leave
5 days per year for the first 6 months of employement. Then another 5 days after subsequent 12 month period. Note that you can also use sick leave kahit hindi ikaw ang may sakit. Por eksampol, asawa mo, anak mo, magulang mo (ewan ko lang kung pati petsna aso, pusa, pwede). As a courtesy you should give your office a call if you plan to take a sick leave, para naman may mahanap silang kapalit kung kinakailangan. Like annual leaves, pwede din i-accumulate ang sick leave. Kaya lang ang maximum by law is 20 days. Di na pwedeng mag-over pa dito.

Bereavement Leave
Kapag namatayan ka sa pamilya, meron kang 3 days paid leave. Dapat immediate family member ang patay, hindi pwedeng pet na aso o pusa. In case of multiple deaths, say por eksampol buong angkan mo, 3 days per family member ang paid leave mo. (Pero di bale na lang, ayoko ko pang maubusan ng angkan).

Maternity Leave (babae)
Upto 14 weeks. Can be extended to 1 year.

Paternity Leave (lalaki)
Upto 2 weeks. Can be extended to 1 year.

Medyo complicated yung rules about maternity and paternity leaves. Basahin niyo na lang dito sa link na ito in case may buntis o nagbabalak magbuntis sa inyo. Papaano kaya kung marami kang nabuntis? Kung kambal, times 2 kaya ang leave?

  • Halos pareho pala dito sa Germany. Ang kaibahan lang ay 30 working days ang annual leave (6 weeks); and unlimited ang sick leave. May Christmas bonus, at konting vacation bonus sa summer.

    Maternity leave is up to 3 years, pero pwede ding bumalik agad sa trabaho kung gugustuhin....ang holidays naman, sa malas ay hindi naiuurong sa regular working day kapag napatapat ito sa weekend...kakainis, pero sobrang kapal na ng mukha kapag nagreklamo pa. he he he.

    TGIF!!!! Enjoy your weekend!!!

  • Sa Canada, we have 9 statutory holidays only: new year, civic holiday, boxing day, christmas day, good friday, labour day, victoria day, thanksgiving day and canada day.

    Maternity/paternity leave is total of 1 year, puwede 6 months sa babae at 6 months sa lalaki or kahit na anong combination basta total of 1 year.

    VL mga 10 days lang normally... it increases as you stay longer with the company... and normally not cummulative din.

    Happy weekend!

  • rhada,
    sarap naman palang magbuntis jan at ang haba ng VL ninyo. yung dati kong pinapasukan unlimited din ang SL namin. depende rin kasi sa employer, pero by law yung 5 lang ang required. happy weekend din sa yo.

    yun nga pala ang di uso dito na di tulad sa atin sa pinas. yung christmas bonus at 13th month pay. hindi required dito yon, depende na sa employer.


    jo,
    i think pareho din dito ang maternity/paternity. upto 1 year din ang maximum total ng dalawa. happy weekend din to you.

  • fafiii paternity leave 2 weeks at pwedeng extend to one year? okay yan ah samantalang kami dito 1 day lang paternity leave. wala akong plano na magbuntis pero ano yan fafi with pay ba hehe. ayos din yung sickleave dyan pwdeng scheduled =)

    dito sa amin ang annual vacation is 30 days para sa mga bago habang tumatagal naman eh nadadagdagan depende sa grade level, sick leave is with pay pero may maximum na days 45 days ang pagkaka-alam ko, pag sumobra without pay na.

    meron dito kami na wedding leave pero 5 days lang (bitin yun heheh)

    salamat sa info...tanong kung self emploted ka entitled ka rin ba sa leave na sinasabi mo ..trick question yan fafi bwahaha

    By Blogger KaDyo, at 11:41 PM, December 03, 2005  

  • Halos magka parehas pala dito sa Luxembourg KU, pero may pagkaiba lang sa annual leave directly dito to 4 weeks, tapos ang sick leave unlimited depende sa advice ng Doctor mo. Sa mga bunoses swerte ang gov't employee laki ng bunos sa private depende, :)
    At pag public hoidays, strict talga NO WORK!
    at kelangan din dito Saturday kompleto rekado ang pangangailangan mo dahil pag linggo wala kang mapag bilhan kahit asin :) sarado lahat! except sa bar pero double payment naman ang workers pag linggo.

  • Ang dami ng pag leave dito, buti nalang may ganon, it would be so difficult kong wala yon. Hay, I can't imagine. Anyway, natuwa ako sa pag babasa ng mga sinabi mo. Informative as always.

  • Tito KU,
    Puwera biro - kala ko talaga may matching bout during boxing day parang yung mahabang laro ng cricket (booor-ring!). Turned out iba pala ibig sabihin ng boxing day. Tuwa ako! Kaya lang magastos din hehehe.

  • kadyo,
    yung 2 weeks yata with pay, after that without pay na pero at least naka-reserve pa rin ang trabaho mo sa yo.

    kung self-employed ka naman entitled ka rin kung bibigyan ka ng boss mo. e sino bang boss mo kung self employed ka? hahaha

    ethel,
    galing naman diyan sa lux unlimited ang sick leave. about 10 years ago dito sa nz ganyan din. sunday and holidays sarado lahat ng business establishments. wala mapasyalan mga malls pag holiday and sunday. lately nalang nagbago.

    april s,
    thanks

    bing,
    thanks. pero dito nga walang christmas bonuses. yun naman ang nakakainggit diyan sa atin.

    ana p.s.,
    thanks

    trotsky,
    pareho tayo. noon akala ko rin may boksing. inabangan ko pa man din ang araw na yon dahil mahilig akong manood ng boksing. yung cricket naman, boring kung papanoorin mo ball by ball at pag di mo naiintindihan. pero pag naiintindihan mo, exciting din. parang golf din na kung minsan 3 days bago matapos. at sa golf you don't have to watch it stroke by stroke at habang naglalakad sila sa greens to get excited.
