Calculate the accrued annual leave of a worker in the first year of employment

Key points

  • During the first year of a worker's employment, the amount of annual leave that he or she may take at any time is limited to the amount of leave that he or she has accrued at that time.
  • There are statutory rules on how to calculate accrual of annual leave in the first year of employment, which apply unless there is a contractual arrangement to the contrary.
  • The legislation also covers how to round up entitlement where the calculation of accrued leave does not result in an exact number of days.
