Fijians to be honest with new leave entitlements

August 7, 2018 4:57 am

Government is urging Fijians to be more responsible and honest with the new leave entitlements that comes into effect from the 1st of January next year.

Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum says there is an opportunity that employees can abuse these leaves but the government is placing its trust on people.

Sayed-Khaiyum says it’s important that Fijians give their best at work.

“ Hopefully they’ll now think that okay now I got paternity leave, I’ve now got family care leave, I ‘ve got my annual leave, I’ve got my sick leave so every time that I work I will make sure I’ll will 120%. So that’s the kind of culture we’re creating.”

These leaves include a fully paid five day Family Care Leave that all employees can utilize each year, a five day paid paternity leave and paid maternity leave has been increased from 84 workers days to 98 working days.

Sayed-Khaiyum was speaking at the 2018/2019 budget roadshow for tertiary students at the Fiji National University in Suva today.
