  • Leave Without Pay

    When an employee gets permission from their employer to take unpaid leave.

    Most often an employee will choose to go on leave without pay if they have used up their other leave entitlements (e.g. annual leave, sick leave). If an employee takes more than one week of leave without pay, the rollover period for their normal entitlements will be delayed by as many days as the employee takes extra leave without pay.

    An employee can only take leave without pay with permission from their employer or a clause in their employment agreement. If the employee takes this leave without permission, it will be deemed as unauthorised leave and the employee could be penalised.
