Proposed New Pandemic Leave

On 1 April 2020, the Fair Work Commission (the Commission) issued a Statement outlining its intention to update 103 awards during the coronavirus pandemic.

The proposed updates would provide:

  • an entitlement to unpaid pandemic leave
  • flexibility to take annual leave at half pay.

The proposed variations would operate until 30 June 2020.
