New Zealand’s Fourth National Action Plan under the Open Government Partnership was made public today.
A phased roll-out of faster claim payments for survivors of abuse in State care has begun, with the first claimants now receiving offers.
Work is under way on preliminary steps to improve the Government’s support for survivors of abuse in care while a new, independent redress system is designed.
The Government is interested in exploring with public sector unions a pay adjustment proposal, the Minister for the Public Service Chris Hipkins said today.
The Government has today released the Abuse in Care Royal Commission of Inquiry report and is starting work on developing a new, independent, survivor-focused redress system.
The Government’s Workforce Policy Statement issued today sets out its expectations for pay and employment relations in the Public Sector, the Minister of Finance and Minister for the Public Service say.
An interim report by the Royal Commission into Abuse in Care, released today, is a deeply moving record of the State’s past failings in looking after citizens in its care, Minister for the Public Service Chris Hipkins says.
