Accruing leave

How leave accrues

Leave entitlements accrue in hours, based on your employment status:

  • Full-time employee: 455 hours after eight years’ qualifying service.
  • Part-time employee: accrues at a rate which reflects the number of hours worked each week. The maximum accrual is the equivalent of a full-time employee.
  • Casual employee: accrues at a rate which reflects the number of hours worked each week. The maximum accrual is the equivalent of a full-time employee.

If your employment status changes from full time to part time or casual and you work less than 35 hours per week, you will accrue leave at a rate that reflects the number of hours you work.
