Increased Sick Leave to 10 days per year

Increased Sick Leave to 10 days per year

Legislation now passed to increase the annual sick leave entitlement from 5 days a year to 10. This will come in effect from 24 July 2021. Now is a good time to check:

  • that you are familiar with what the changes are
  • that your payroll software will be ready for the changes
  • your employment agreement leave clauses¬†have the right wording
  • what wording you should use for a variation to existing agreements (and consult with your HR provider).
