Fair Work Commission introduces changes to annual leave

A review of annual leave award provisions has resulted in a range of changes, including new capabilities for employers to direct employees to take paid annual leave when the worker is accumulating a excessive amount of leave, writes Guillermo Troncoso for Dynamic Business.

Other changes include: employees on an EFT means of payment can be paid in their usual cycle during paid leave, as opposed to prior to leave commencing; employers can now grant leave in advance; and employees, assuming their employer agrees, can now cash out a portion of their leave – subject to some conditions.
