With the Christmas/New Year break fast approaching it is relevant that we all update ourselves on the various provisions of the Fair Work Act that may impact on leave taking through the period.In particular it is important to understand that the right of an employer to send an employee on an annual close-down will depend on the applicable industrial instrument (e.g. modern award or enterprise agreement) or, in the case of an award/agreement-free employee, the Fair Work Act 2009.

Please note that the dates set out in this Bulletin were correct at the time it was sent out, but these may vary as individual states gazette changes.
