More support available for the schools yet to complete end of year pay process

Expert special advisors are still available to the 400 schools yet to complete the end of year pay process.

The end of year information impacts a group of about ten thousand teachers who are fixed term or long-term relievers, most support staff, and any staff going to a new school next year.

These staff will receive their pay on December 12.

Group Manager Rebecca Elvy says the Ministry of Education will continue calling schools this week to offer additional support to complete the process.

“We have called more than 1500 schools and 85 per cent of schools have successfully completed the process.

“If any payroll administrator needs additional support we are here to help either on the phone or through a visit by one of our special advisors.”

Ms Elvy reiterates the Ministry’s commitment to a smooth end of year payroll process.

“If any employee is underpaid or not paid, the school can make an advance and the Ministry will reimburse it, or the Ministry can make the advance directly to the staff member.”

To arrange a direct advance from the Ministry during the Christmas break the affected staff member can email resourcing@minedu.govt.nz with the subject line: ‘Advance’ or call 04 463 8383.
