Annual Leave Agreements

As you may already know, annual leave (sometimes called vacation pay) allows part-time or full-time workers to work while they take their leave. The amount of annual leave to which each employee is entitled is derived from the National Employment Standards (NES) – a set of standards that any business organisation in Australia must meet. To understand the number of annual leaves of each employee, it is important to review their specific work agreement. In each of the above scenarios, the entity should therefore arrange payment instead of annual leave, as well as other additional overdue payments and their salary for the remaining working days. The amount an employee receives when an employment relationship is terminated is called the final payment. The source of a right to a discharge is usually the arbitral award in force, the corresponding agreement or the employment contract.
