Most Holiday Payments Paid

The Ministry of Education says most of the holiday payments for school staff that were expected to be delayed have now gone into bank accounts.
Chief Information Officer, Leanne Gibson, says 2,600 holiday payments were made today and the remainder will be in bank accounts during the day tomorrow.

“We had initially expected holiday payments for this group of non-teaching staff to be delayed until tomorrow, but most have gone through today.

“Other people who are still due their holiday entitlement will receive it tomorrow.”

Ms Gibson says the Ministry is sorry for the delay, but is pleased the majority of staff have been paid and that the latest fortnightly pay cycle has successfully paid 92,000 staff.

“We have continued to see improvement every fortnight and the Ministry and Talent2 are confident the final pay round for 2012, on December 21, will run smoothly.

“We know this is a really important time of year for people, which is why we have brought this pay day forward and put measures in place to ensure everyone is paid before Christmas.

“If any staff member is either not paid or significantly underpaid, the Ministry will make a direct payment to them if their school isn’t able to do that.”
