Reopening of Citizens Advice Bureau face to face service

Wednesday, June 10, 2020   Posted in: Signatory Notice Board By: Administrator With tags: services, Advocacy, advice, employment

The Citizens Advice Bureau is now open for Face to Face (kanohi ki te kanohi) services - Monday to Friday from 10am to 3pm. Please come on in and one of their fabulous volunteers can help you with information on a range of topics.

CAB volunteers are still having lots of enquiries about employment rights.
For example: Is it legal for your employer to just make you redundant effective immediately as they have lost business because of COVID-19?

Employers and employees must discuss in good faith the implications of COVID-19 on their working arrangements. This means that before making employees redundant they must follow a fair process whenever they want to make an employee redundant.

If an employer does make employees redundant they must give notice to the employee in writing with among other things information about the notice period. If the employment agreement has no specific clause giving a period of notice in a redundancy situation, 'reasonable notice' must be given.

You can make a complaint to Employment Services if you are concerned that your employer is not following the rules about using the wage subsidy.

You can live chat or contact the Citizens Advice Bureau online as well as phoning 0800 367 222 (0800 FOR CAB). You can also contact your local branch directly:

  • City Branch at Ara Institute (03 366 6490 or christchurchcity[at];
  • North Branch at the Fendalton Library (03 359 8090 or christchurchnorth[at] or;
  • West Branch at the Hornby Community Centre (03 349 5236 or christchurchwest[at]

You can also follow the Christchurch CAB on Facebook to get the latest updates.
