All full-time staff recruited on or after 14 December 2011 are subject to a maximum annual leave entitlement of 30 days, subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant recruitment competition. Annual Leave entitlements vary by grade, length of service, and workshare pattern, and are affected by unpaid leave such as shorter working year.
The Organisation of Working Time Act (1997) gives all full-time employees a statutory minimum of four working weeks’ annual leave (pro-rata for worksharers). You must take your annual leave as provided for in the OWTA during the year in which it is accrued or, in certain cases, within 6 months of the start of the next leave year.
If your manager approves your request for annual leave, the annual leave will be updated automatically. Your time and attendance system will be updated as per arrangements made between HR Services and your department/office.
