The Holidays Act 2003 (the Act) sets out the minimum statutory requirements for entitlements and pay for annual holidays and bereavement leave, alternative holidays, public holidays and sick leave (BAPS) for all employees. However, it is widely accepted that the Act’s wording is ambiguous and can be interpreted inconsistently, particularly for those on non-standard work hours, for example, rostered workers or part-timers.

The project has completed a discovery phase which confirmed the extent and root causes of the Ministry’s non-compliance. Following the discovery phase, the project has split into two workstreams:

• Attain and maintain compliance; and
• Remediate

The first workstream, Attain and maintain compliance, is forward-looking and relates to ensuring that the Ministry’s systems comply with the Act in the future. This first workstream is out of scope of this opportunity.

The second workstream, Remediate, is backwards-facing and relates to calculating the Ministry’s historic liability for the entitlements and pay for annual holidays and BAPS leave for all current and past Ministry employees dating back to April 2009.

The objective of this sourcing event is to identify and engage a suitably qualified supplier to support the Ministry to complete the second workstream, Remediate.
