Pay day moved forward for school staff

30 November 2012

Pay day moved forward for school staff

Most school staff will receive their Christmas pay on December 21 to help ensure payments go as smoothly as possible.

Ministry of Education Group Manager, Rebecca Elvy, says the pay day would normally fall during Christmas week, but will be brought forward.

“The earlier date will enable pay issues for any individuals to be dealt with promptly and before Christmas.

“We appreciate how hard school payroll administrators have been working and want to ensure they don’t need to return to school during their holiday period.”

Ms Elvy says 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.

Ms Elvy says more than 90 percent of schools have returned their end-of-year data, which is a credit to the hard work of payroll administrators.

“Our calls to schools offering more assistance continued this week. If any payroll administrator is still struggling to complete the end of year report, we can also send an expert advisor out to assist them.”

This 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.

Those staff will receive their Christmas pay on December 12.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
