November 2023 Update:

Like many public and private organisations across New Zealand, Te Whatu Ora has been impacted by Holidays Act 2003 compliance issues.

If you worked for Te Whatu Ora, one of the former District Health Boards, or Health Alliance, Health Partnerships, Health Source or Northern Region Alliance at any time since 1 May 2010, you may have been paid incorrectly for your leave. We’re committed to addressing these issues, to ensure current and former Te Whatu Ora staff receive their correct leave entitlements.

For current employees, you can read more on your local intranet.

For former employees, please register with us through our secure national portal, so we can keep you informed about any upcoming payments that may relate to you. The portal provides a single point of contact and source of information for all former employees nationwide.

Please note we will never ask you to provide personal or banking details by phone or email – you will be asked to use the secure portal.

We will also reach out directly to former employees using your last known contact details.

If you are currently overseas and find that you are unable to register on the portal from that location, here are some options:

  • try again when you travel to a different country
  • assign power of attorney for someone in New Zealand to act on your behalf.

Payments to former employees are expected to start in 2024. We are legally obliged to pay any amounts owed, no matter how small.
