All employees, full-time, part-time, temporary or casual, earn annual leave entitlements from the time they start work. Most employees are entitled to four weeks’ paid annual leave per leave year.
Depending on time worked, employees’ holiday entitlements should be calculated by one of the following methods:-
- 4 working weeks in a leave year in which the employee works at least 1,365 hours (unless it is a leave year in which he or she changes employment).
- 1/3 of a working week per calendar month that the employee works at least 117 hours.
- 8% of the hours an employee works in a leave year (but subject to a maximum of 4 working weeks).
