  • You want to clarify how payroll is processed for employees during annual leave to minimise the risk of related disputes; and

  • You want to protect your Company by ensuring that employees are aware of your right to direct them to take annual leave under certain circumstances.

What does this Annual Leave Policy cover?

  • Eligibility requirements for annual leave;

  • Procedure for any annual leave requests;

  • Company liability for any unauthorised leave taken by employees;

  • Company directions to take annual leave during an annual shut down, or where an employee has accrued excessive leave; and
