We've been reviewing our payroll processes

Kāinga Ora, along with other Government agencies and New Zealand businesses, has been working to correct issues that have led to some current and former employees receiving incorrect payments under the Holidays Act 2003 (the Act). We've completed this work and became compliant with the Act on 23 September 2020.

If you worked for Kāinga Ora, Housing New Zealand or HLC from 14 July 2010 to 23 September 2020, you may be entitled to a remediation payment.

Next steps

We have identified some former employees who are due a remediation payment and let them know by letter and/or email.

If you haven’t received any information from Kāinga Ora about our Holidays Act remediation, and believe you may be entitled to receive a payment, complete the form below:

Once you’ve submitted the form, we will contact you to confirm whether you are owed a payment. If you are owed payment, you will be asked to provide us with documents to verify your identity. Once these steps have been completed, we can process your payment.
