High Court agrees to hear personal/carer's leave case

Print Version

13/12/2019

The High Court has today granted Mondalez International the right to appeal the meaning of “10 days of paid personal/carers leave” as quantified under section 96 of the Fair Work Act. The appeal comes after a ruling in August that confirmed Mondalez employees were entitled to 120 hours of paid leave rather than the 76 hours calculated by Mondelez.

This case is important because it changes the traditional approach to accruing and paying personal / carer’s leave.  The outcome of this decision may cause significant complications for employers and so we will keep client’s updated as to the progress and outcome of this important case.
