Inbox: Executives Enjoy More Leave

Article excerpt

Business decision makers have longer annual leave entitlements than employed New Zealanders as a whole. A Horizon Research poll finds 17 percent of decision makers have five weeks annual leave, compared with just 9.4 percent of employees as a whole. Just over 44 percent of decision makers have the statutory four weeks annual leave, while 45 percent of the employed population do overall.

Decision makers also enjoy more sick leave: 21 percent have 10 days compared with 17.3 percent of employed people overall. Just over 32 percent of decision makers have five days sick leave entitlement a year, compared with 37 percent of the employed overall.

Reflecting the numbers with no set agreements and those who are business proprietors or self-employed, a third of decision makers have no set annual leave entitlements and 37.4 percent no set sick leave entitlements: nearly nine percent more than the employed population as a whole.
