New Zealand Post Primary Teachers' Association / Te Wehengarua (PPTA) advice to secondary teachers regarding the end-of-year and start-of-year dates for pay purposes.
27 January 2014 is the end-of-year date
For most pay purposes 27 January 2014 is the end-of-year date for the 2013 school year and 28 January 2014 the beginning of the next.
If you’re resigning, going on leave without pay (LWOP under Part 6 of your collective agreement) in 2014, or completing a full year’s fixed-term teaching, then holiday pay is paid up to and including 27 January 2014.
(Note 1: Being paid until 27 Jan is dependent on having worked the full school year. Some fixed-term appointees get all holiday pay cashed up in one pay period in December.)
Changes to payments for units and allowances, starting (fixed-term or permanent) teaching or resuming teaching, LWOP for 2013, all kick in from 28 January 2014.
If a beginning NZ or new overseas teacher is required at school prior to 28 January then that teacher must be paid from that earlier date and the school must notify payroll.
