This is a reminder that from 17 January 2019 rostered employees’ annual holidays will be calculated and paid from when the annual holidays are actually taken (as recorded in SMS), rather than from when it is scheduled through a leave group.

Please note:

  • annual leave is now shown on the payslip as “Annual Leave – Ops”

  • annual holidays for rostered employees may now be paid over two pay periods if this aligns to when your leave is taken

  • your pay will be adjusted if holidays have been paid and then changed in SMS after the payrun cut-off, because they were not taken as planned.

Please read the Holiday pay for rostered employees news update - January 2019, which provides details and examples of the changes.
