February 12, 2019

The method of accruing and taking of personal/carer's leave for the purposes of the National Employment Standards is currently the subject of legal proceedings before the Federal Court (Mondelez Australia Pty Ltd v AMWU & others (VID 731/2018)).

The decision in these proceedings may impact upon the Fair Work Ombudsman's (FWO) advice on these matters. The FWO will be reviewing its advice at the conclusion of these proceedings.

Further guidance and leave calculators can be accessed at the fair work leave calculator. Alternatively, the FWO website is offering a free online record training course: FWO free record training course
