Since Auckland’s recent COVID-19 case that was announced yesterday, the government advised that staff working in the CBD are to work from home where possible.

Employers will be able to apply for the COVID-19 Leave Support Scheme, including those who are self-employed, to pay their employees who need to self-isolate and cannot work from home.

Work and Income Queen St, Grey Lynn and Mt Eden offices will be closed Friday 13 November.  If you have a meeting booked at one of these offices, you will receive a call as soon as possible.


To apply for the payment support, you must visit the Work and Income website. To find out more information, click here to visit the COVID-19 Leave Support Scheme information page.
