Support for early learning services and staff

Early learning services will continue to receive operational funding throughout the lockdown period.

To cushion the financial impacts of level 4 on early learning services, the Government is again reassuring providers that their operational funding will not be reduced at this time.

Other financial support

The Government’s COVID-19 website details the range of financial supports available to employers.

This can be accessed at Financial support for businesses | Unite against COVID-19(external link)

Information about eligibility for support and how to apply is included.

Today the Resurgence Support Payment(external link) also went live.

Support with employment matters

The Employment NZ website provides useful information for both employers and employees so this is a good place to start if you are navigating employment matters such as leave and pay. The website also provides information on the best way to prevent and resolve problems.
