Leave​


    Alert iconPart​-time and full-time employees who would normally work on a d​ay a public holiday falls are gener​ally entitled to be paid their base rate of pay for the hours they would have ordinarily worked. Casual employe​es aren't entitled to be paid for a day off for a public holiday.

    Annual leave

    All employees, except casual employees are entitled to annual leave. The minimum amount you are entitled to is four weeks for every year of work. Some employees (for example, shift workers) may be entitled to more than the minimum amount, but this will depend on their award, enterprise agreement or contract of employment. If you are dismissed, or resign from your job, you should be paid any annual leave that you have not taken.

    Leave loading is an extra payment made to you for every day of annual leave you are paid. It is usually a percentage of the amount of holiday pay you are paid. Your award, enterprise agreement or contract of employment will tell you if you are entitled to leave loading, and how much it is.

    For more information, see Annual leave and leave loading.

    Personal/carer's and compassionate leave

    Personal/carer's leave allows you to take time off work if you are sick or to look after a member of your immediate family or a household member who is sick, or if there is an emergency. It may be paid or unpaid.

    Compassionate leave allows you to take time off work if a family or household member dies, or is seriously ill or injured.

    For more information, see Personal​/carer's and compassionate leave​.

    Community service leave

    Parental leave

    Parental leave allows you to take time off work for the birth or adoption of a child.  Part of parental leave may be paid, depending on your circumstances.

    Long service leave

    If you work for the same employer for a set length of time, you may be entitled to long service leave. This is extra leave you become entitled to after a set period of service. NSW legislation sets out your entitlements to long service leave, but your award, enterprise agreement or contract of employment may also affect your entitlements.

    For more information, see Long service leave.

    Other leave

    • leave to attend court (other than for jury service)
    • Defence Forces leave.
