Leave can be one of the most complicated areas when managing your employees. With the festive season fast approaching, employers will likely encounter a deluge of issues related to leave entitlements: Can you force staff to take annual leave? How should you pay employees on public holidays? What about sick leave and long service leave? And can you cancel someone’s leave at the last minute?

In this webinar, Senior Associate Dean Tyler from Australian Business Lawyers & Advisors will walk you through how to successfully manage leave in your business. He’ll also explain what a smart leave policy looks like and what can happen when you don’t have guidelines in place.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The different types of leave that are available
  • The rate leave is paid at
  • How leave is accumulated.
