Your Employment Rights
It doesn’t matter what company you work for in New Zealand, as an employee you have certain employment rights. These minimum rights apply to all employees regardless of your visa status or what is written in your employment agreement.
It’s important to know your rights, and what to do if you believe your rights are not being met by your employer.
- to be paid 1.5 times your normal pay for that day; and
- to receive another paid day off (if the public holiday that you worked is a day that you normally work on).
- 5 days’ paid sick leave a year;
- up to 3 days’ paid bereavement leave on the death of your spouse or partner, parent, child, sibling, grandparent, grandchild, or your spouse or partner’s parent;
- up to 1 day’s paid bereavement leave on the death of any person not mentioned above and if your employer accepts that you have suffered a bereavement; and
- up to 10 days’ paid domestic violence leave.

- emailing or speaking with your Franchise Manager at the Super Liquor Support Office. If you are unsure of their contact details, you can call 0800 547867 to get them.
