Why does my business need a Staff Leave Policy?

A Staff Leave Policy sets out an employee’s entitlements to leave and should be used to notify your employees of what leave they are able to apply for and seek. It is important to remember that different types of staff will be entitled to different amounts of leave.

For example, casual staff members can only receive unpaid leave, however they are legally entitled to claim this whenever they need, whereas full-time staff are able to take paid annual leave, sick leave, carer leave, compassionate leave, parental leave, and various other forms of leave subject to their employment award.

The National Employment Standards (NES) establish the minimum requirements that employees should receive with regards to taking leave and further guidelines can be found under the employee’s applicable Industry Award or Enterprise Agreement. It is important that your Staff Leave Policy has all the necessary leave entitlements that are listed in the NES.

By implementing a Staff Leave Policy, you will be able to clearly communicate with your employees the leave that they are entitled to and the procedures of how to obtain this leave, thus helping them follow the best procedure when requesting their leave. Additionally, having a Staff Leave Policy that is compliant with the NES and Fair Work can aid in protecting your business from future claims and disputes.

The Business Kitz Staff Leave Policy is drafted in accordance with the NES and Fair Work by legal professionals within our business which saves you the cost and time of having to engage a lawyer to draft the initial policy.
