Fair Work Information Statement

Fair Work has released a brand-new version of the Fair Work Information Statement following a full Federal Court decision issued on 21 August 2019 which confirmed the correct method for accruing and deducting paid personal/carer’s leave under the National Employment Standards.

The information in the Fair Work Information Statement has been updated to reflect this decision. An appeal of this decision will be heard by the High Court in 2020 but in the meantime, the decision made on 21 August 2019 is the current state of the law and applies to affected employers and employees.
