1. OHS POLICY HRS - POL - HR 00 7 .0 Document Name and Reference Date Effective Version Set Review Planned Review Page HRS - POL - HR 007.0 Leave Entitlement Policy 20/04/2018 1 1 year 20/04/2019 1 of 2 LEAVE ENTITLEMENT POLICY Annual Leave Full - time permanent employees are entitled to 20 days paid annual leave for each completed year of service. Part - time employees accrue annual leave on a pro - rata basis calculated as a proportion of ordinary hours worked over the period of a year. Casual em ployees are not entitled to any annual leave because they are hired and engaged by the hour and are paid an additional loading to compensate for no annual leave. Annual leave must be taken at a time agreed between you and management. You are required to pr ovided a minimum of 4 (four) weeks notice before annual leave is taken. A shorter notice period is acceptable if annual leave is required for a genuine emergency. Unused leave balances accrue from year to year. However, annual leave must be taken within 12 months of entitlement. Also you must not have more than eight weeks annual leave accrued, primarily because HRS has an obligation to ensure the health and safety of employees, which includes elimination of fatigue where possible. Annual leave balances and pro - rata entitlements will be paid out on termination of your employment. Annual Leave for Shut down periods: If the business shuts down for a particular period of days (e.g. between Christmas and New Year), you are required to take, during that period, the amount of annual leave requested by management. Directions to take accumulated annual leave: If you have accumulated [eight or more] weeks of annual leave, HRS may direct you, with four week’s notice, to take a minimum of two week’s annual leave in compliance with this policy. Compassionate Leave: Approved paid compassionate leave is available for permanent full and part - time employees of up to two days on any one occasion. If you want to take paid compassionate leave you must provide management with reasonable supporting evidence of the leave requirement . Casual employees are not entitled to paid compassionate leave, but may take approved unpaid compassionate leave. Personal/Carers (sick) leave: Paid personal/carer’s leave accrues for permanent full and part - time employees from the date of permanent employm ent. All permanent full - time employees are entitled to 10 days paid personal/carer’s leave per year. • Part - time employees are entitled to paid pro - rata personal/carer’s leave, and casual employees may apply for unpaid personal/carer’s leave. • Personal/carer’ s leave is cumulative. You must have sufficient sick leave available to cover paid leave . If you claim paid personal/carer’s leave for more than 2 days, you must provide management with a Medical Certificate. Also, if you are absent on a Friday, a Monday or the day before or after a Public Holiday and claim paid personal/carer’s leave, you must provide management with a Medical Certificate for the day(s) absence.
