Further improvements in latest Novopay pay cycle


The Ministry of Education says the latest pay round for school staff went smoothly with more than 92,000 staff paid overnight.

Group Manager, Rebecca Elvy, says it is very encouraging to see the steady progress being made with Novopay.

“Every pay day we have seen continued improvement, and we are confident the new payroll system will deliver real long term benefits for schools.”

“In any situation where someone has not been paid, there are measures in place to address that.

“They should contact their payroll administrator and ask for an advance. If the school is not able to make the advance, the school administrator can contact the Ministry directly via email so we can get it sorted out as quickly as possible for them.”

Emails can be sent to resourcing@minedu.govt.nz with “Not Paid” or “Underpaid” in the subject line.

Ms Elvy says the Ministry and Talent2 are also working to ensure all staff are paid as expected for the Christmas period.

“It’s great that nearly 90 percent of schools have now completed the end-of-year pay process and we are working to support those who have yet to supply their information through both direct calls and visits from expert advisors.

“Once again, if anyone’s pay is incorrect leading up to Christmas, they will be able to contact us and we will make sure they receive their correct pay promptly.”

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
