Annual Leave Query

James Murphy Tax


I have an employee who wishes to be paid out a portion of his annual leave entitlement.

Can you please advise if the annual leave payout is part of the annual leave accrual?

I am not certain it would be as it is a payment in addition to his ordinary time hours therefore if included, he would exceed his 20 days annual leave entitlement accrual.


It depends on what award the employee is covered by as to the allowance of how much annual leave an employee can cash in.

When you cash it in you do not accumulate annual leave on the cashed in portion you only accumulate on the leave you take, but rightly so you only accumulate 20 days a year.
