Did you know … about leave during the illness or accident of a close family member?

If you are employed by a DHB you’re entitled to reasonable leave on full pay if a close family member becomes ill or has an accident. That’s right, Clause 27 of your DHB collective employment agreement provides for sick leave not just when you’re sick, but when someone important to you is also unwell or injured.
