Ten (10) days of paid Personal Leave entitlement (such as Sick Leave or Carer’s Leave) is available to full time team members for every year of employment which accrues on a monthly basis. Part time team members are entitled to a pro-rata of this entitlement, weighted against their hours of work. Casual team members are not entitled to paid Personal Leave but can access unpaid Personal Leave.
Personal Leave may be taken either for absences caused by sickness or injury (Sick Leave) or to care for sick or injured family or household members (Carer’s Leave).
Sick leave is provided for temporary absences from work caused by sickness or injury. Where team members are absent due to illness or accident for 2 consecutive days or more, or for any single day that falls on a Friday, Monday, or immediately after a Public Holiday, a medical certificate must be provided to their manager immediately upon return to work. A medical certificate may also be required for any period of Sick leave if requested by the team member’s manager.
