Southland Business Chamber Submission on proposed NZ Income Insurance Scheme

The Southland Business Chamber Board, management team and our members do not support the implementation of A New Zealand Income Insurance Scheme.

In our view now is not the right time to have the conversation around another cost to business owners.

The scheme comes at a time when businesses can least afford additional costs following Covid stricken trading periods, an additional leave day, increases to the minimum wage, increased leave entitlements, rising inflation and the current stress levels that we’re currently seeing amongst business owners. Now is not the time to be adding additional stress to the business community.
