The changes for 2015
Annual Leave Loading
Annual leave loading – a loading of 17.5% payable when at the time the employee takes annual leave is fully effective in the Modern Awards
For those employers already paying above the Award, the Annual leave loading can be absorbed into the hourly rate/annual salary, provided that this has been communicated in writing.
If your business is currently paying the Annual leave loading at the time the employee takes annual leave, you can continue to do so.
