What you'll be paid while you're on annual leave
Your employment agreement tells you when you'll get paid for time off and how your pay is worked out.
How much you'll get paid
While you’re on annual leave, you'll be paid either:
- your normal weekly pay
- the average you've earned a week over the 12 months before the holiday.
You have to be paid whichever amount is higher.
You're employed part time and your regular days of work are Tuesday and Wednesday — but you often pick up weekend shifts when they're available.
If you take a week off, you'll be paid the average amount you've earned a week over the last 12 months — because that amount will be more than what you'd get for your regular Tuesday and Wednesday shifts.
When you'll get paid
Your employment agreement tells you when you'll get paid for time off — you might not need to wait for your regular payday.
